Periapsis Music and Dance

Join Periapsis Music and Dance for a full evening of dance with live music. Our sixth season program features three world premieres from our resident company of dancers and musicians, plus guests from the Periapsis Open Series. Resident choreographer Erin Dillon and composer/artistic director Jonathan Howard Katz have crafted Epoch, a new large-scale work for the ensemble, and we’ve commissioned guest choreographer Janis Brenner and composer Leah Asher to create a trio. Completing the program are works presented through our service programs: a new duet by Wendell Gray II and Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti created during our Emerging Artist Residencies last summer, and three guest performances through the Periapsis Open Series.
