On Friday, July 23, at 6:30 p.m., The Watermill Center will host an “Artists’ Table Dinner” with alum Catherine Galasso who will present an open rehearsal of “Get Dancing,” a piece featuring dancers Kristopher K.Q. Pourzal and Meg Weeks that will premiere later this month at Guild Hall.

“Get Dancing” re-imagines the work of the late Andy de Groat, an early collaborator of The Watermill Center founder Robert Wilson and a member of The Byrd Hoffman School for Byrds. The re-staging of these historic downtown works sees Galasso explore themes common in de Groat’s choreography — a keen sense of timing, phrasing and rhythm explored through pedestrian movement within a complex framework.

The presentation will be followed by an intimate, farm-to-table meal with the artists on The Center’s scenic grounds, prepared by Chef Adam Mayer.

Space is limited and reservations are required at Tickets start at $250. The Watermill Center is at 39 Watermill Towd Road, Water Mill.
