The Moving Architects’ Brass Figures reveals through dance and original music the literary voices of past and contemporary Chicago writers. Artist Director/Choreographer Erin Carlisle Norton’s world premiere of “This Sandy Cube,” inspired by a short story of Dave Eggers, is anchored in the real world while revealing our superior, animal, and searching natures. A journey of four women begins with brashness, intuitively caravans through time and space, ending with a conjoining if the spirits. Original music by Ian Hatcher highlights the passing and pushing of time through xylophone, melodihorn and guitar.
The acclaimed “1001 Afternoons in Chicago” is inspired by the 1920’s short stories of Chicago’s journalist Ben Hecht. The dancers playfully and thoughtfully embellish and embody the characters, images, and cityscapes, specific to the classic Chicago scene. Original music by Amos Gillespie, of Accessible Contemporary Music, provides a contemporary classical music ensemble score that pinpoints the currents and styling of the time.
Brass Figures features dancers Anna Goldman, Stefanie Karlin, Erin Carlisle Norton and Alison Riazi,; with costumes by Lisa Stevens, lighting design by Kalamazoo’s own Megan Slayter, original composition by Amos Gillespie and Ian Hatcher and choreography by Artistic Director Erin Carlisle Norton. The two performance will be Saturday, September 13, 2008 at 2 and 8pm at Kalamazoo’s Wellspring Theater at Epic Center.
