Long Gone intricately blends dance and storytelling to celebrate heartfelt, funny and irreverent memories of those long gone. Weaving movement and spoken word, choreographers Lida Winfield and Ellen Smith Ahern explore how our dead continue to live and evolve through memory and imagination. Passionate about making dance an open dialogue between performers and audiences, Ellen and Lida’s work finds beauty and humor in this challenging topic that connects us all.
Lida Winfield & Ellen Smith Ahern collaborate long distance, working as dancers and teachers in Vermont and New York, respectively. With grant support from the Vermont Arts Council, the VT Arts Endowment Fund and the National Endowment for the Arts, they’ve shared their duet work throughout New England, Greece, Italy, Hungary and the Czech Republic.
