Dancing the Studio
by Pam Tanowitz for 'Dancing Studies'
From Sunday 1 to Thursday 5 May from 12 pm to 4 pm
Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi

From Sunday 1 to Thursday 5 May 2022, Pam Tanowitz, known for her abstract treatment of classical and contemporary movement ideas, is the third guest of the cycle of performances 'Dancing Studies". She will present a new dance installation, “Dancing the Studio”, inspired by Bruce Nauman’s “Mapping the Studio” and his emphasis on process-over-product. “Dancing the Studio” removes the boundary between process and performance. The rehearsal and the performance are one and the same.

From April to June 2022, Palazzo Grassi - Punta della Dogana presents ‘Dancing Studies’, a series of new performances created by a group of internationally-renowned choreographers - William Forsythe, Lenio Kaklea, Pam Tanowitz, Ralph Lemon - invited to develop a project in dialogue with the work of Bruce Nauman and the exhibition 'Bruce Nauman: Contrapposto Studies' at Punta della Dogana.

The costumes for the performances of Pam Tanowitz are designed by Matthieu Blazy for Bottega Veneta, partner of Palazzo Grassi – Punta della Dogana for this program.
