Field is the third work by Liz Gerring in the trilogy of large scale proscenium works commissioned by Montclair University, New Jersey, Peak Performances . Featuring seven dancers and created in collaboration with composer Michael J. Schumacher and production designer Robert Wierzel, glacier (2013), Horizon (2015) and now Field (2018) are each constructed using Gerring's powerful, evolving movement vocabulary. Gerring, Schumacher and Wierzel together, create a field of multiple dimensions with motion, light and sound. Field is based on an extended male quartet where human effort and the discipline of form emerge transcendent. The work features longtime principles Brandon Collwes and Claire Westby.
Co-produced by Peak Performances @ Montclair State (NJ).
Field was developed in residence at the Alexander Kasser Theater, Montclair State University. Special thanks to Kirk Radke for additional funding.
