Dancer on a Tightrope video

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

In 2009 Yellow Barn commissioned a production of Sofia Gubaidulina's Dancer on a Tightrope in collaboration with Sandglass Theater, a frequent Yellow Barn partner, to honor John Burt, Yellow Barn's 2009 Scholarship Benefit honoree. One year later Yellow Barn and Sandglass Theater reunited to videotape the production.

This collaboration was made possible with the generous support of the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University, the Fresh Sound Foundation's Trustee Discretionary Fund, and neighbors in the Friendship Loop in Putney, VT.
