What Better Than Call a Dance?
April 20, 2018
At the Chapel Performance Space
KSD collaborated with longtime friends/colleagues/collaborations Kin of the Moon (KOTM) and Beth Fleenor to create “What Better Than Call a Dance,” a performance inspired by the relationship of dance to music, and how they two inform one another.
One of the fascinating aspects of the classical music tradition is examining and reworking historical practices. KOTM reworked Renaissance dance, the waltz, the tango, and EDM through its own lens, utilizing electronics, clapping games, recorded and filtered samples, multiple acoustic instruments, and improvisation, as well as through-composed new music by Heather Bentley and Kaley Lane Eaton.
