On an unseasonably warm day in November, the dancers Rebecca Margolick and Stephanie Crousilat met me on the lower level of Grand Central Station to board a northbound train to New Canaan, Connecticut, the birthplace of the mid-century modern movement in American architectural movement and site of Philip Johnson’s Glass House, where we would bring Peter Silberman to record a series of dance and music performance films with the songs of his new album, Impermanence, at the heart.
Clothed in the designs of Wolcott-Takemoto, perfectly-toned to the falling leaves around them, Rebecca and Stephanie drew Peter and I from landscape to landscape, interior and exterior, in a weaving and meandering exploration of the lines and planes of Philip Johnson’s master work.
Peter Silberman’s new album, “Impermanence”, is available now.
