Karen Peterson and Dancers perform at Pinecrest Gardens
February 3, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm| $15
Karen Peterson and Dancers, renown as the nation’s premier mixed-abilities dance company in the southeast, will perform live with the Crosstown String Quartet and The Miami String Project at the historic Pinecrest Gardens Banyan Bowl amphitheater. The dance company’s Senior Dancers will perform alongside the Crosstown String Quartet. The Youth Dancers (ages 15-22 and also of mixed abilities) will perform with the young musicians of the Miami String Project (ages 12-19).
The performance kicks off Karen Peterson and Dancers’ 23rd season. During Potpourria, a bold blend of synchronicity and spontaneity between the dancers and the musicians features eight musical selections with original choreography by Karen Peterson, set to music by Vivaldi, Bach, Britten, Grieg, Petersburski, Summers and Piazzola. The second half of the production, titled In the Moment, features a premiere collaboration between the Youth Dancers and the Miami String Project. Audiences will experience never-before-seen works of choreography set to the music of The Lover’s Waltz composed by Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, plus The Chinese Folk Tunes by composer Bright Sheng.
