Touch Bass: Open Rehearsal
Programmed by Sean Carson
This is an "open rehearsal" of the Full performances by Touch Bass on September 10 and 11.
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.
