Adele Myers and Dancers
Einstein's Happiest Thought
Inspired in part by Myers’s attempt to get over her fear of falling by enrolling in trapeze school, Einstein’s Happiest Thought is a work that delves into the charged physical states of risk and anticipation. Directed and choreographed by Myers for her company of four, the work features collaborating composer Josh Quillen of So Percussion.
Before Friday's performance, there will be a pre-show conversation between Myers, Quillen and David Henry, ICA's Director of Programs. Before Saturday's show, Myers will conduct a special "warm-up" for audience members. Both events will take place in the State Street Corporation Lobby at the ICA, beginning 30 minutes before curtain.
