Sight Lines: A Night of Performance in Dialogue with the Work of Michael Galasso is a curatorial project by Catherine Galasso. Initiated to create new dialogues around the body of musical work by composer Michael Galasso, her late father, Catherine has invited six artists/pairings of varied aesthetic, artistic, and creative concerns to create 5-7 minute choreographic responses to unpublished recordings of his compositions. The responses offer new ways to illuminate how the continuous dialogue of music and movement-one that Michael was steeped in- take place across time and artistic tradition. A focused effort in meaningfully locating Michael's work to audiences that may be unfamiliar with his musical contributions, Sight Lines works broadly to uncover layered artistic histories, while encouraging a personal and proactive approach to performance.
Michael Galasso was a minimalist composer active in New York in the 1970s and 80s before relocating to Europe, where he wrote mainly for film, dance and theater up until his death in 2009. He is most known for his compositions for theater director Robert Wilson and Wong Kar-wai's In the Mood For Love soundtrack.
