In 2023, Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels is supporting the Fisher Center at Bard for the creation of Song of Songs by Pam Tanowitz.
Spiritual, playful, and mysterious, the biblical Song of Songs (also known as The Song of Solomon) is perhaps the greatest of all love poems—a hymn of yearning, steeped in images from the natural world. The poem has inspired artists and lovers for millennia. Now composer David Lang and choreographer Pam Tanowitz join forces to create a major new dance performance inspired by this beautiful text. A union of song and movement, Song of Songs moves between abstraction and figuration to create a meditation on loving and being.

“I feel a deep personal connection with this work—an intimate, small-scale love story. The use of this text provides a framework to push myself artistically.”
