My new work Meek, Bent, & Wild has its premiere this Friday, April 3 at the Dancemakers Center for Creation. The work was commissioned by the TorQ Percussion Quartet for their New Maneouvers concert of dance + percussion.
Meek, Bent, & Wild is set to a new work by Canadian composer James Rolfe commissioned specially for TorQ, and involves over thirty instruments, four dancers, and a few hundred feet of climbing rope. The movement style is eclectic, influenced by everything from martial-arts wire work to Ukrainian folk dance. (And yes, there’s cowbell.)
It’s going to be an awesome show — there’s more great music (Steve Reich’s Mallet Quartet, John Cage’s Third Construction, a new work by TorQ’s Daniel Morphy) and new dance works by Louis Laberge-Côté, Linda Garneau, and Lauren van Gijn. Hope to see you there!
