Tina Fehlandt, Mark Morris Dance Group founding member and longtime répétiteur, talks about setting the work 40+ years since its last performance
Castor and Pollux premiered in November 1980 at the Merce Cunningham Studio during the very first performance of the Mark Morris Dance Group, and has been performed only once since, during a December 1981 run at the Dance Theater Workshop. Tina Fehlandt was among the eight dancers in the premiere cast and recently staged the work on the current company in preparation for The Joyce shows next month.
In this video, Tina shares what it has been like to stage Castor and Pollux on the current company, what it’s like working with a new generation of Mark Morris Dance Group members, and what has her most excited about the upcoming performances.
Castor and Pollux will be performed during the second week of performances, August 8-12, along with the stage premiere of Tempus Perfectum, the world premiere of A minor Dance, and All Fours (2003). Get tickets now.
