Experimental folk band Chimney Choir and dance troupe Wonderbound collaborated in 2015 on the show "Boomtown," with the former providing music for the latter's ballet performance. The two Denver entities clearly enjoy working together: They'll team up once again on the new production "Aphrodite's Switchboard," which debuts this month. The show centers around a telephone switchboard operator and incorporates elements from ancient Greek mythology.

Chimney Choir stopped into the CPR Performance Studio to give us a preview of the music from "Aphrodite's Switchboard." The members also spoke with Alisha Sweeney about getting more experimental with the new production, using tarot cards for songwriting inspiration and how their music shaped the show's choreography.
