Pam Tanowitz Dance
PASSAGEN featuring Pauline Kim Harris
The Spectators (excerpt) featuring FLUX Quartet
Freedom teases form and the graceful traditions of ballet and modern dance fracture in gorgeous, post–modern moments, set to contemporary scores performed live. The onstage vitality of violinist Harris, playing John Zorn’s PASSAGEN, and FLUX Quartet, performing Annie Gosfield’s score, as well as recorded music by composer Dan Siegler, augment witty excerpts from Tanowitz’s acclaimed The Spectators.
