Full: Touch Bass

Programmed by Sean Carson

Touch Bass is a collaboration of choreographer Risa Jaroslow with bassist and composer Lisa Mezzacappa, featuring three dancers, three bassists, and three double basses in an exploration of our physical and emotional vulnerabilities. It uses the fragility of a big, beautiful string instrument as a metaphor for our own real and imagined limitations. The interactions between dancers and musicians, music and movement, people and basses create connections that are by turns tender, awkward, playful, and poignant.

This event was originally scheduled to take place in May 2020. Please join us nearly two and a half years later for a spectacular event featuring dancers Anna Greenberg, Karla Quintero, and Cauveri Suresh, and bassists Shayna Dulberger, Lisa Mezzacappa, and Dan Seamans.

An “open rehearsal” on Thursday, September 8, at 4 PM will be free with gallery admission.
