Chaski, Psophonia Dance Company, and Austin Chamber Ensemble are producing the multidisciplinary four-city collaboration The Book of Goddesses in Music and Dance to present performances of Grammy® nominated composer Robert Paterson’s chamber work The Book of Goddesses (2010) with live music and modern dance as envisioned by the composer. The synergy of the collaboration stems from The Book of Goddesses by author Kris Waldherr. The performances bring together three musicians, one composer, one choreographer, and nine dancers from across Texas to embark on the journey of divine femininity.
