Pam Tanowitz to Be First Choreographer in Residence at Bard Center

Pam Tanowitz, whose 2018 piece “Four Quartets” at the Bard Fisher Center in Annandale-on-Hudson, N.Y., received critical raves, will return as its first choreographer in residence, the center announced on Thursday.

For the position, a three-year residency to begin in February, Ms. Tanowitz will create three commissioned dances, including a collaboration with the New York City Ballet principal Sara Mearns; she will also develop a digital archive of her work.

Ms. Tanowitz’s time at the Fisher Center is being supported by a $1.2 million gift from the philanthropists Jay Franke and David Herro.

“It’s an incredible opportunity for me,” Ms. Tanowitz said in an interview. “As a midcareer artist sometimes it’s hard to keep going as far as support, and this is allowing me to have some stability for the creative process and performance.”
