ABOUT

Inspired by Albert Camus’ essay on the Myth of Sisyphus, which concludes that “one must imagine Sisyphus happy”, Sit, Kneel, Stand is an evening-length work that explores the restless human search for meaning in a daily life full of absurdity, inertia, and simple unexpected rewards. It is set to the original score of Jerome Begin and Christopher Lancaster.

REVIEW

downloadSit, Kneel, Stand is sophisticated and touching; you think along with it as well as laugh along with it. And it ends on a beautiful high.”

- Margaret Fuhrer, June 12, 2012

SUPPORT

 

Gallim Dance received generous support for the creation of Sit, Kneel, Stand from First Republic Bank. The music for Sit, Kneel, Stand was commissioned by the Charles and Joan Gross Family Foundation. This work was created during a residency provided by The Joyce Theater Foundation, New York City, with major support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and during the 2011-2012 New York City Center Choreography Fellowship. Sit, Kneel, Stand was also funded in part by the Harkness Foundation for Dance. Material in Sit, Kneel, Stand was developed during a commission by Ballet Bern to create For Play.
