Hudson Hall is thrilled to announce Adam Weinert as our 2021 Artist-in-Residence.
Weinert is a dancer, researcher and gardener based in Hudson whose work has been described as “impressive, strange, a puzzle you want to solve” by The New York Times. His work is grounded in extensive historical research and spans live performance, video, augmented reality, and site-based installation. He has danced with The Metropolitan Opera Ballet Company, The Mark Morris Dance Group, and Shen Wei Dance Arts.
In addition to his performance work, his writing has been published in The New York Times, PAJ: A Journal of Performance and Art and The Juilliard Journal. Weinert produced and choreographed two award-winning dance ﬁlms screened nationally and abroad, and his performance works have toured to four continents, where they were presented in conventional proscenium theaters as well non-traditional dance venues such as the Museum of Modern Art, The Tate Britain Museum, and The Tate Modern Museum.
Adam was honored with a 2020 Bessie for Outstanding Revival for his work addressing the legacy of pioneering choreographer Ted Shawn. Shawn’s cultivation of dancing and agriculture has been inspirational to Adam, providing a touchstone for his work in the studio and in the field. Adam’s current practice focuses on the sensuous connectivity between place, history, productivity, and performance.
