Both known for their virtuosity, rigor, and risk-taking, classical pianist Simone Dinnerstein and choreographer Pam Tanowitz unite for an intense collaboration around Bach’s notoriously challenging Goldberg Variations.

This summer, Dinnerstein, Tanowitz, and seven dancers will occupy the ICA’s Barbara Lee Family Foundation Theater for a weeklong Summer Stages Dance @ the ICA/Boston residency, before returning to the ICA to perform New Work for Goldberg Variations in December.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see the two uncommon talents at work, and the piece in progress, before it officially premieres.



New Work for Goldberg Variations was commissioned by Duke Performances/Duke University and Peak Performances/Montclair State University, co-commissioned by Opening Nights Performing Arts/Florida State University and Summer Stages Dance at the Institute for Contemporary Art/Boston, and received creative development support from the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography (MANCC) at Florida State University, The Yard at Martha’s Vineyard, the NYU Center for Ballet and the Arts, and New York City Center.

New Work for Goldberg Variations was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. General Operating support for Pam Tanowitz Dance was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project with funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
