How do we surround a dance with space, allowing it to flower in our presence? Dancers from the Boston Conservatory at Berklee improvise to live music and draw inspiration from new works in “Seeking Stillness.” When improvising in performance, dancers investigate thoughts, ideas, feelings, and their capacity for movement invention, contributing to the evolving performance. Directed by Olivier Besson, associate professor, the Boston Conservatory at Berklee, with music created by Nate Tucker.
I'll be playing live music for the Contact Improvisation Jam at Dance Complex run by Olivier Besson this Monday October 9th, 8pm-10pm. See you there!
