One event on April 28, 2019 at 4:00 pm
Join us for BoSoma Dance Company’s 15th Annual Spring Season 2019:
Keys in Black and White, reveals a pianist transforming into the keys of the instrument. It is an abstract, “Fantasia-like” story of how a pianist’s movements and choices, performed by solo dancer Kelsye Chevalier, bring to life the energy, movement and timing of the piano keys, as performed by six company dancers. As the piece builds, the pianist becomes absorbed by the keys, exposing the energy from her soul through her music.
Artistic Director, Katherine Hooper draws inspiration from the whimsical music of neoclassical composers Poppy Ackroyd and Florian Christl, and the work of painter Marcel Duchamp and his fascination with the concepts of movement and transition through time.
Gloucester based costume designer, Jennifer Greeke, once again collaborates with Hooper in designing costumes, entering the world of black and white reflection, pattern and texture. Hooper will also debut a new classic jazz duet that blends stylized, nostalgic and playful movement to life. And back to stage returns Train Stop Shuffle (2016), set to the toe-tapping music of Club des Belugas and the electrifying rhythmic work Tapestry: A Sonata in Three Movements (2018.)
