DECEMBER 15, 17
A STUDY ON EFFORT / Harvard Dance Center
A Study on Effort explores connections between sound, body and duration. An hour-long dialogue between dancer BOBBI JENE SMITH and violinist KEIR GOGWILT, the piece transposes different physical and emotional tasks between music and movement. Efforts are supported and transformed in the exchange between gesture and sound, finding pleasure at the boundaries of the two artistic disciplines.
CAGE MATCH / OBERON THEATER
Violinists MIRANDA CUCKSON and KEIR GOGWILT face off in duets by Telemann, Donatoni, and Wolff; countertenor ANTHONY ROTH COSTANZO goes head to head with ZACK WINOKUR in Scene III of Monteverdi’s Poppea; and MATTHEW AUCOIN faces fellow pianist CONOR HANICK in masterpieces of the four-hands repertoire and a new piece of his own.
WERE YOU THERE / Loeb Drama Center
A theatrical piece in which hymns, spirituals, songs, and audience participation come together in a multimedia meditation on the lives of black men and women lost in police killings over the past year.
"...real, intense, and brilliantly performed." - Leonore Overture
“Were You There” is not a concert. It’s a lament, a memorial and a catharsis. It’s a calm, measured shaking of the audience’s shoulders." - The Bay State Banner
