UT Texas Performing Arts presents: Cullberg — Works by Deborah Hay featuring music by Graham Reynolds, Jan. 28, 2023

Performance Date  - Sat, Jan 28, 2023

The Match at 2:00 p.m.

Horse, the solos at 7:30 p.m. featuring live music by Graham Reynolds

A performance of Hay’s 2004 masterpiece The Match will kick off a day of performance, discussion, and film screenings. This iconic work contains meditation-like exercises that invisibly bind the dancers to the material by establishing a mental, emotional, and bodily rigor visible in the performance. Time Out, New York proclaimed “The Match is a fascinating, vibrant battle of wits that unfolds through a silent score of movement.”

Horse, the solos, is a meditation on the climate crisis and modern survival, with new music by Austin-based composer Graham Reynolds. “Horse, the solos is choreographed in a manner that relies on an intuitive understanding of risk, efficiency, and survival. There is control in efficiency but not risk-taking. Combined they establish the conditions for [the work],” says Hay.  For its U.S. premiere, Graham Reynolds will perform the music live for the first time.  The program will open with a rare solo performance by Deborah Hay.

Fall 2022 Workshop with Deborah Hay in Austin, TX

Fall 2022 Workshop with Deborah Hay

"finding coherence in movement and choreography -- for performers interested in both"


My mind is my body in dance. This coherency sustains my practice. 

It is how I maintain and confirm my interest in movement, performance, and choreography. Tools will be offered to support access to your own experience of coherence while dancing.

I will guide a daily collective movement practice based on finding coherence through the cellular body. Writing will be part of our practice. Working within modules of 5 persons, short individual and ensemble choreographies will accrue through the movement and writing that transpires each day. Choreographically the only caveat is that there is no obvious representation or illustration in the movement.

-Deborah Hay
