Yonder

Yonder (2005) is a haunting suite set to traditional music from the American South, from Alan Lomax’s field recordings.  In this quartet, the ghosts of Pretty Polly and the young woman murdered by the Banks of the Ohio come back to haunt their murderers, exhausted farmers flirt at barn dances, and eventually everyone ends up in the cold hard ground.   As Gia Kourlas at the New York Times said: “Stripped of ornament, the work was an example of pure choreographic construction.”  Premiered at the Arts Bank, 20 minutes.
