“We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are”-Anais Nin
Three pairs of award winning composers and choreographers respond to a melody from Stockhausen’s Zodiac-inspired Tierkries. Acclaimed musicians from new music groups So Percussion and Music join for a performance exploring the nature of perspective.
Now beginning its fourth season, duende is a new music and contemporary dance collective which focuses on the interaction between performers and dancers in the live realization of new scores. Co-founded by composer Alyssa Weinberg, cellist Gabriel Cabezas and dancer/choreographer Chloe Felesina, shows emphasize an equal collaboration of music and dance, exploring the creative possibilities that result from the marriage of these two disciplines. Duende has produced shows in a wide range of venues including Performance Garage, Made Studios, the Print Center Gallery, and SEI Innovation Studio at the Kimmel Center in collaboration with the Curtis Institute of Music’s 20/21 Ensemble.
