Quarry Dance IX, was filmed in July 2020 at three private quarries on Cape Ann, MA. Windhover Center for the Performing Arts (Rockport, MA), hosted the Brooklyn-based Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre (www.dusantynek.org) for one week to develop original choreography for the film.
Windhover serves as a refuge for artists where dance and theater productions, as well as performing arts residencies and classes can flourish (www.windhover.org).
The Quarry Dances (QD) are the result of a vision nine years ago by Windhover’s founder, the late Ina Hahn. The aim was to marry the art of dance with the pristine granite landscapes of the quarries of Cape Ann. Carrying this vision forward, Lisa Hahn, Executive Director of Windhover, is mindful of bringing attention to the natural world and the beauty of the Cape Ann landscape. This performance followed all of the Covid-19 protocols.
Funders and Assistance: Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation, the Rockport and Gloucester Cultural Councils and individual donors. A big thank you to the quarry owners who revere, preserve and protect these unique places.
