ESDC has been invited to perform at Chesterwood in a site specific series of dances created in response to John Van Alstine’s exhibition, Tipping the Balance: Contemporary Sculpture. Cellist Ashley Bathgate will perform with the dancers. Located in Stockbridge, MA, Chesterwood is the former summer home, studio and gardens of America’s foremost sculptor of public monuments, Daniel Chester French.
Two performances will take place on Saturday, July 10 at 2 and 4 pm. In case of rain, the performances will take place at the same time the following day, Sunday, July 11.
Directions to Chesterwood:
From West, Albany (one hour)
Take I-90 east to exit B3 – Route 22. Go south on New York Route 22 to Massachusetts Route 102 East. Stay on Route 102 East through West Stockbridge. Continue on Route 102 East approximately 5.5 miles until you come to a blinking light at the intersection of Route 183. Make a right at the blinking light onto Route 183 South.
Approximately 1/4 of a mile past the Norman Rockwell Museum, turn right onto Mohawk Lake Rd. Take your first left onto Willow St, continue up the hill, onto the dirt road, and around to the right (this is now called Williamsville Rd). Chesterwood will be on your right farther down the road with a large sign ahead.
