An Evening With Djordjevich and Peck
September 9-12, 2009
Can music and dance become indistinguishable? What might it mean for a musician to give an embodied performance? Can a dance be so musical that it is not perceived as a dance? A choreographer and a composer generously engage in a collective endeavor to render such questions irrelevant. Choreographer Milka Djordjevich and composer Chris Peck present a collaborative evening of short works where movement and sound are in dialogue. The pieces attempt to assess, analyze, and question the inherent and/or uninherent relationship between music and dance. Working together and in isolation, the artists address their shared interests in sound and movement. Djordjevich makes a piece that Peck will perform. Peck makes a piece that Djordjevich will perform. Djordjevich and Peck make pieces that Djordjevich and Peck will perform. Djordjevich and Peck make pieces that Djordjevich and Peck will not perform.
