Simone Forti’s Dance Constructions (1960–61) were key forerunners to Judson Dance Theater. Made from inexpensive materials, including plywood and rope, each “construction” prompts actions such as climbing, leaning, standing or whistling. Simultaneously sculptures and performances, the works were first presented at Reuben Gallery and the artist Yoko Ono’s loft, both in New York.

The following works are performed: Accompaniment for La Monte's “2 Sounds” and La Monte's “2 Sounds”,” Censor, Huddle, Platforms, Slant Board. On selected dates See Saw will also be performed, with special guests.

The Dance Constructions are performed on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. throughout the exhibition.

Performers: Martita Abril, Christiana Cefalu, Christhian Diaz, Ayano Elson, Talya Epstein, Jessie Gold, Miguel Ángel Guzmán, Samuel Hanson, Elizabeth Hart, Savannah Knoop, Columbine Macher, Jody Oberfelder, Laura Pfeffer, Lee Relvas, Lindsay Londs Reuter, Alex Rodabaugh, Alex Romania, Alexis Ruiseco-Lombera, Quenton Stuckey, Vanessa Vargas
