The program features 10 dancers performing to music by:
- Singer Paul Fowler, who uses his laptop to create music from complex layers of vocals
- Darwin Grosse and Gregory Taylor, whose work mixes Indonesian music with electronic sounds
- Violinist Zachary Carrettin, who leads the Boulder Bach Festival, will present a piece called “Take to Light” inspired by the story of Humpty Dumpty. Carrettin often mixes acoustic and electric instruments in performance.
3rd Law's Lee Stern says it's a thrill to work with the local artists.
"Nothing comes close to the experience of working directly with a composer where you are in constant conversation, verbal and non-verbal," Stern says. "It becomes a richer experience because both dance and music can change in real-time to adjust to the needs of the work."
Watch Carrettin play a J.S. Bach Cello Suites arranged for electric violin, from his CPR Performance Studio session.
