About

Thursday, August 17 at 6:15pm

Periapsis Music and Dance was founded with a mission to cultivate and support new repertoire at the intersection of dance and music, creating and facilitating opportunities for artists to perform with live music and for choreographers to work with living composers. The company’s program, The Portrait Project, is comprised of four different short works, each featuring a solo dancer and solo musician, and each created by a different guest choreographer in collaboration with a composer. Each work will be performed with live music, including Escape Velocity by Seán Curran (with percussion), Twine by Manuel Vignoulle (with viola), Separate Rooms by Joshua Beamish (with bass clarinet), and Reflection by Katarzyna Skarpetowska (with piano). Periapsis Artistic Director and co-founder Jonathan Howard Katz composed original music for Escape Velocity, Twine, and Reflection, and the Separate Rooms score is by composer Shawn Jaeger.
