In such works as Here Rests Peggy and Bear Crown, Brooklyn-based dancer and choreographer Ivy Baldwin has combined a unique sense of space with sonic and architectural elements to create highly emotional and physical pieces. Her latest evening-length work, Ambient Cowboy, which is having its world premiere May 2-5 at New York Live Arts, was inspired by master architect Philip Johnson’s Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut, a National Historic Site with structures that have no interior walls, only glass exteriors. Ambient Cowboy will be performed by Baldwin, Molly Poerstel, Lawrence Cassella, and Eleanor Smith, with sound design by Justin Jones, lighting by Chloë Z Brown, and a live, evolving set by painter and installation artist Anna Schuleit that changes every night. The May 2 show will be preceded by a talk with Ryan Tracy, while the May 4 performance will be followed by a discussion with Brian Brooks.
