Watermill Artists-in-Residence, Cleek Schrey and Gillian Walsh, invite the community to explore their work through In Process @ The Watermill Center. In Process @ The Watermill Center invites the community to engage with our resident artists on Saturday afternoons through open rehearsals, workshops, studios visits, lectures or artists talks.
During his Watermill residency, fiddler and composer Cleek Schrey will begin experiments for a new work for his own unique instrument and electronics. The Hardanger d’amore is custom-built violin with 10 strings, 5 of which ring sympathetically beneath the fingerboard. Schrey will engage the performance space by introducing radio frequencies and light.
Gillian Walsh (choreographer) and collaborator Emily Hoffman (writer), will begin developing a new choreographic work modeled after 9 Evenings – the 1966 collaboration between artists, choreographers, and Bell Labs. Applying choreographic thinking to an entirely different technological landscape.
