Event type: All Ages
Is there a glimmer of sound you can see as it unfolds? Is there a hint of music hidden in every phrase of dance? Our BTE15 mainstage show offers both an eye and ear into the fascinating intersections between music and movement. Join us for a night of SOUNDGLIDING. A CRAZY KIND OF HOPE Choreographed by Vancouver’s Sarah Chase, with live and recorded music by Antoine Bedard, Justin Rutledge and Bob Dylan, this work performed by Andrea Nann combines stories of hope and heartbreak with intricately recurring gesture loops. SUPERCOLLIDER Lori Freedman improvises music in the moment, while Marc Boivin improvises dance. Adding another layer of spontaneous creation, James Harley captures and filters sound, while video of Boivin is captured, processed and projected. STUDY FOR A CROUCHING FIGURE One of Marie-Josée Chartier’s most arresting and physically demanding choreographies, Montreal’s Brendan Wyatt will dance Study for a Crouching Figure at Between the Ears. This extraordinary solo is set to and equally extraordinary score by Rodney Sharman, an unrelenting sonically brutalist landscape for amplified string quartet and piano. Featuring Jeremy Bell, Gregory Oh, Leslie Ting and others.
Cutoff is Sunday, June 21, 2015 5:29 pm EST unless it sells out earlier.
