Arts Calendar: Dance
Music and dance interact in an intimate, unexpected ways in two great artists’ collaboration on the Goldberg Variations. Dinnerstein is internationally acclaimed for her interpretation of Bach’s elegant masterpiece, while Tanowitz is known for dance that is distinctly modern, infused with ballet and a playful spirit. In this work, Dinnerstein performs at a concert grand at center stage, around which Tanowitz’s dancers—as if conjured by the music—execute fresh, intricate movement revealing the rich emotional world of Bach’s studies.

Becoming Human is an intermedia exhibition seeking to identify and dissolve barriers between human and wild in the Anthropocene. In the three-channel video and sound installation The Air Connects Us, two dancers can be followed as they navigate Shanghai’s bustling streets, urban forests and massive industrial sites in search of connections to wild. During the exhibit, Jennings will present a live duet, Sea Inside Our Skin, rooted in the Chinese maxim “飲水思源 (drink the water, remember its source). This duet invites the audience to witness how breath and water nourishes, propels and changes us from within. Project VT: Pauline Jennings' Becoming Human was directed by Double Vision choreographer and co-Artistic Director Pauline Jennings. Becoming Human is a collaboration with Double Vision’s Calvin Aham and Joshua Lacourse (movement), Sean Clute (music composition), Jessica Gomula (video direction), Allen Hahn (cinematography), Jack B. Du (photography) and Amy Nielson (costume consulting).
