   During an extended artistic residency at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA, Lucinda Childs, one of the most celebrated choreographers of the modern era, is reviving Available Light, her seminal 1983 collaboration with composer John Adams and architect Frank Gehry.

This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA will present three work-in-progress showings of Available Light in the Hunter Center.

First presented in a warehouse-style performance venue at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art in 1983, Available Light blends Lucinda Childs's signature style of choreography, merged with Frank Gehry's stunning two-story Constructivist set and John Adams's original, textured score, Light Over Water.
