Creating illustrious environments, Yanira Castro crafts worlds in unexpected places. Her newest work, Wilderness is a performance and audio installation with live piano performed by Michael Dauphinais. For this iteration*, Wilderness unfolds in a dark field set in a warehouse where the audience and dancers are contained. Ranging from stark and emotional to highly formal the work features performers Luke Miller, Peter Schmitz, Darrin Wright, Pamela Vail, and Kimberly Young with sound design by Stephan Moore, light, set design by Roderick Murray and costume design by Albert Sakhai.
Wilderness is commissioned by Dance Theater Workshop’s Commissioning and Creative Residency Program with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, with additional support provided by Jerome Foundation. Wilderness is funded in part by the National Dance Project of the New England Foundation for the Arts, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and additional funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the Community Connections Fund of the MetLife Foundation.
