justin and the chair

justin and the chair

Justin Coates rehearsing the chair solo I created for myself when I created “In my room”. This is a rehearsal at the 92nd Street Y in NYC where I received a Harkness Space Grant for free studio space.

“In my room” is a haunting dance to a score by Meredith Monk called Biography from her CD Dolmen Music. This quartet had a brilliant early life. First it was selected to be included in the faculty concert at my university. Next my cast and I went to ACDF and were thrilled to be included in the final gala concert. Finally I included it in MFA concert but with a new cast of undergraduate students.

Cut to many years later after a glorious performing career I restaged it on myself and three faithful student/colleague/friends. I was so happy and proud to bring it back to the boards as they say!!! Now something new is due….what might it be? Stay tuned…
