On Clarinda Mac Low’s 40 Dancers do 40 Dances for the Dancers by Scott Thurston

In “40 Dancers do 40 Dances for the Dancers,” at Danspace Project in St. Mark’s Church on September 13-15, performance and installation artist and co-director of Culture Push Clarinda Mac Low assembled nearly 40 performers over the course of three nights to execute all 40 of her artist, composer and performance artist father Jackson Mac Low’s performance-instruction poems from his 1964 collection, “The Pronouns: A Collection of 40 Dances for the Dancers.” The event was a tribute in the form of a “child’s-eye view” of the 1970s avant-garde; an homage both to the Judson era and to Mac Low, who would have been 90 that month. Scott Thurston is currently researching the relationship between innovative poetry and experimental dance practices. As part of this work he traveled to New York City in September to see “40 Dancers,” to interview Sally Silvers and Bruce Andrews, and to take a workshop with Simone Forti.
