Faith | Faith Triptych Part 1 | Pat Graney
About This Performance
Faith is the first performance in Seattle choreographer Pat Graney’s Faith Triptych. Combining 3 iconic performances that investigate the lives of women and that were created over the span of a decade (1991-2001), the triptych creates a mini retrospective of Graney’s work. Faith (1991), Sleep (1997) and Tattoo (2001) were each originally commissioned by On the Boards and feature 12 of the original cast members.
With a career that has spanned over 30 years, Graney has been recognized as "one of the top modern choreographers in the country" (Boston Globe). Over the course of 3 decades she has grown from presenting works at OtB’s former home, Washington Hall, to performing throughout the USA as well as in Japan, England, Scotland, Germany, Singapore, Chile and Brazil. Over the past 15 years she has led Keeping the Faith — The Prison Project, a nonreligious arts-based residency that helps incarcerated women to discover a sense of identity through the use of performance, video and writing.
The remount of Faith Triptych is commissioned by OtB, the Myrna Loy Center, the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts and the National Performance Network.
Faith Triptych was made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts' Amerrican Masterpieces: Dance initiative, administered by the New England Foundation for the Arts. Read less
