Inspired by the current era of human mass migration, Artistic Director Nancy Karp is making a full evening work in three parts, the first two movements set to newly commissioned scores by composers Kui Dong and Robert Honstein, respectively, and the third to the late Lou Harrison’s " Grand Duo" for piano and violin. Six dancers will be accompanied by three Bay Area musicians to include cellist Gianna Abondolo, pianist Sarah Cahill and violinist Kate Stenberg. MEMORY/PLACE matches the music of the 3 composers with the work of Bay Area artist Thekla Hammond, one of whose large-format abstract paintings will serve as a primary element in the evening’s scenic design combined with stage decor and lighting by designer Jack Carpenter.
At the Center for Dance - ODC Dance Theater in San Francisco.
