In December 2015, Catherine Galasso presented an evening of early works by choreographer Andy de Groat, engaging with a living history of the artist that was both personal and part of a lineage of downtown performance. The evening culminated with a new work created by Galasso titled notes on de groat, a poetic meditation on the ways in which her own process, as a choreographer and visual artist, intersects and deviates from de Groat’s aesthetic, which she has been steeped in since a young age through her father, composer Michael Galasso, de Groat’s longtime collaborator. In a rare remount for the Bard Graduate Center seminar room, notes on de groat locates personal and historical distance though the ways in which these dialogues live and breathe across time, legacy, and artistic tradition. The piece was originally commissioned by Danspace Project, and will be performed by Doug LeCours, Kristopher K.Q. Pourzal, and Meg Weeks.
