The Particular Premiere of A First opens tonight at the Baryshnikov Arts Center. The show runs for only two days, so don't miss it. (Get your tickets here) I had the opportunity to speak with Esmé at the beginning of the month when she was putting finishing touches on her evening. Lots of great props. Merde Esmé and crew.
The Particular Premiere of a First is an evening length multi-media performance piece directed and choreographed by Esmé Boyce, a graduate of the Juilliard School under the direction of Lawrence Rhodes. The work, which will combine dance, video, creative set design and live and recorded musical performances of original compositions, is loosely based on images and ideas derived from the Big Bang Theory, evolution, gravity and surprise.
The creative team behind this project includes Cody Boyce, Music, Composition and Video; Ivan Himanen, Set Design; Michelle Ross, Music and Composition; Brandon Stirling Baker, Lighting Design; and Dancers Giulia Carotenuto, Carlye Eckert, Allysen Hooks, Katherine Partington, Kendra Isobel Samson and Jin Ju Song-Begin.
