Faith Triptych combines 3 iconic performances created over the span of a decade (1991-2001) into an evening-length mini retrospective. Faith, Sleep and Tattoo, all originally commissioned by OtB, will be recreated and shown back to back for the first time, featuring 12 of the original cast members (including dance scene stalwarts KT Niehoff, Peggy Piacenza and Amii Legendre). Faith Triptych received the American Masterpieces grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Graney, now in her 30th year of dance making, is recognized as "one of the top modern choreographers in the country" (Boston Globe). Over the course of 3 decades she has grown from presenting works at OtB’s former home, Washington Hall, to performing throughout most major US cities and across Japan, England, Scotland, Germany, Singapore, Chile and Brazil. In the past 15 years she has also focused on Keeping the Faith — The Prison Project, a nonreligious arts-based residency that helps incarcerated women to discover a sense of identity through the use of performance, video and writing.
The remount of Faith Triptych is commissioned by OtB, the Myrna Loy Center, the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts and the National Performance Network.
Faith Triptych was made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts' Amerrican Masterpieces: Dance initiative, administered by the New England Foundation for the Arts.
