COMPANY premieres Modulations, a two-part multimedia performance incorporating dance, visual art, film, projection, and live music. One half public art, the other a staged dance performance, Modulations will provide audiences two opportunities to experience this new work.
On July 19 and 21, Modulations will be presented live on film in downtown Durham. COMPANY performs for a multi-camera shoot directed by filmmaker Alex Maness at an offsite location. Audiences will view the dance through the eyes of a filmmaker, as in-the-moment decisions by Maness interact with the dance performance and, in a sense, re-choreograph the work. The dance performances will be live-streamed and projected by KONTEK Systems in Downtown Durham at 21c Museum Hotel at the Bull Plaza, with live music by Del Ward. Event is free and open to the public.
On July 23 and 24, Modulations will be presented live onstage at 21c Museum Hotel’s Main Gallery. Audiences will experience the work as choreographed for a stage in the round, accompanied by different live sound scores each night. On July 23, the work will feature collaborators Matt McClure and Lee Weisert. On July 24, Modulations will be accompanied by a live experimental synthesizer set by Jess Dilday (Playplay). A free afterparty will follow Monday’s performance, with a DJ set by Playplay. Tickets are available by donation online and at the door.
