Dance/Music Improvisation night, Jan 28

Tanisandpotatoes_c.jpg“Behind the Kiln”, Thursday January 28 at 8 pm (PWYC), a prototype  for an intermittently regular evening of dancer and musician improvised collaborations.  The idea is to pair up at least one dancer with at least one musician, and see what happens.  Performers confirmed so far include Tanis MacArthur and Anne Milne (dance) and Judith Sandiford (projections), musicians Annie Shaw and Sarah Good on vocals and feedback loops, Michael Morritti on stand-up bass, Jennifer Lockman on piano. Why does Tanis call it “Behind the Kiln”? — because if you leave wood to dry behind the kiln, it warps into all kinds of strange unpredictable shapes. As Tanis puts it, “This event is all about the interaction between artists. It’s not about blowing the audience away with high kicks and spins and intricate choreography. It’s more about small delights. Subtle but powerful communication. and, of course, play. Experiential rather than sensationalistic.”
