A Full Menu of Offerings at PS21
About one hour north of Salisbury, Conn., is Chatham, N.Y., a town celebrated for both beauty and creativity. Among other offerings are the diverse programs at PS21 Performance Spaces for the 21st Century.
Lovely in normal times but especially comforting at the tail end of the COVID-19 quarantine, much of the PS21 program takes place in the center’s outdoor pavilion.
There is also PS21 Chatham/Pathways, where workshops and performances take place outdoors on the 100-acre campus’s trails.
More traditional cultural offerings include the Modern Opera Fest, this year featuring three new operas: “The Extinctionist,” “Pan” and “Ipsa Dixit.”
Paul Taylor Dance Company will be in residence at PS21 for three weeks (June 21 - July 4; August 1-8), rehearsing and performing some of Paul Taylor's most beloved masterworks including Aureole, Company B and Esplanade. During the residency, the Company will be in a reconstruction of The Green Table, and will hold a performance of the work they have done thus far on the reconstruction.
Chamber music offerings include the Escher String Quartet and the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.
