In The Moving Company’s first Pillow performance since 2013, they perform a world premiere and revisit Closing Distance which premiered just before the pandemic and hasn’t been performed since. Flight Study, a new work set to a dynamic string quartet piece by GRAMMY-Award winning classical composer Bryce Dessner, was developed in multiple residencies over the past year. PROGRAM: Flight Study; choreography: Brian Brooks in collaboration with the dancers; music: Bryce Dessner. Closing Distance; choreography: Brian Brooks; music: Caroline Shaw.
