As he appears in the text:

“Soon after divorcing Martha [Graham], Erick [Hawkins] met Lucia Dlugoszewski, a nontraditional composer who had studied with John Cage. Lucia and Erick collaborated and married a decade later, though they kept their union a secret until his death in 1994, after which she became the director of their company. During her five-decade career, Lucia received great recognition. Frank O’Hara was her first reviewer. John Ashbery and Willem de Kooning were fans. Robert Motherwell became such a close friend that she dedicated her last work, Motherwell Amor, to him. Lucia failed to show up to its premiere; she was later found in her apartment, dead of natural causes.”
