A Note to Friends, Supporters, and Audiences

Collaborating Artists: Anne Carson, Sarah Sze, and Jenny Holzer

This July, Summer Stages 2010 performance season will take a new and exciting turn, by moving the series, in its entirety, to the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (ICA), and developing a program with the ambitious goal of demonstrating the dynamic resonance of collaboration between the visual arts and poetry with dance makers.The challenge of losing our performance venue at Concord Academy to repairs this summer creatively inspired a natural transition in Summer Stages ongoing partnership with the ICA. Indeed, the magnificent Barbara Lee Family Foundation Theater, with views of Boston’s Harbor Walk, presents an ideal setting for this season's focus of "Art as Collaboration" featuring two pairs of renowned visual artists and dance makers: Sarah Sze and Trajal Harrell, and Jenny Holzer and Miguel Gutierrez, as well as acclaimed poet Anne Carson and Cunningham principal, Rashaun Mitchell.
