ColorFields | Helen Frankenthaler
In partnership with the Judy Dworin Performance Project, and the Frankenthaler Foundation the NBMAA will present ColorFields, inspired by the late work of abstract expressionist painter
Currently a work in progress, ColorFields embodies JDPP’s signature artistry, interpreting visual image and spoken word through the vocabulary of dance and movement. ColorFields is a deep exploration into Helen Frankenthaler’s work and process to bring her inspirations and creative choices to life for audiences to ponder. Helen Frankenthaler’s pioneering use of color, the centrality of the improvisational moment in her work, and her inspiration in nature are key touchstones for JDPP’s founder and artistic director, Judy Dworin.
JDPP and NBMAA, in cooperation with the Frankenthaler Foundation, are inviting their members and supporters to witness and engage in the creative development of ColorFields through a yearlong series of open rehearsals, project updates, and in-progress showings, both live and through social media. These developmental milestones will lead to a final performance hosted by NBMAA in late spring 2021.
