Commissioned on the occasion of opening the Moody Center for the Arts, Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre presented the world premiere of a new work created in response to James Turrell’s Twilight Epiphany Skyspace located in the Suzanne Deal Booth Centennial Pavilion on the Rice campus. Vespertine Awakenings was the result of a week-long residency and was performed together with an original score composed by Kurt Stallmann of Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music.
