FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Rover Presents
‘The Batteries Duo and Tribe of Human’
The Batteries Duo, comprised of electronic musicians and trumpeters, Josh Frank and Gareth Flowers, along with choreographer Rani Welch, founder and Art Director of The Rover Soho, collaborate for the first time with live music/dance based on the Batteries Duo's album, Les Amusements. Premiering at the same venue, the show will run Friday, September 17th, 8pm, Saturday, September 18, 8pm and Sunday, September 19, 3pm, at 41 Wooster Street, Floor 2, New York. Tickets are 5 and can be purchased at the door (cash only) or for reservations visit
This show is an exploration of the abstract and ambient sounds of Frank and Flowers and is truly brought to life with Welch's otherworldly and of-this-moment storytelling. Be prepared....the show breaks through traditional notions of "audience/performer" roles. Dancers begin blocks away outside, stopping traffic, and drawing the audience in. From there the show trickles through the space and out onto The Rover rooftop, bodies atop the old brick, standing like city fixtures that move and hum. Culminating at the main stage will be ‘Tribe of Human’ with live accompaniment from the fresh, uncanned, and fascinating new sounds of ‘The Batteries Duo‘ www.thebatteriesduo.com.
The Rover Soho is a brand new gallery/performance venue with a vision to stretch your artistic arm, as well as your imagination.
