Choreographer Penelope Freeh and Composer Jocelyn Hagen
and other offerings of New Music and Dance
Inspired by the instability of collaboration and other hard-to-define relationships, Silppery Fish harnesses sounds and images form the natural world. A dancer clings like moss while another becomes a heron-cypress hybrid. A voice creates a breather and wordless watery soundscape while a viola scrapes and plucks, upsetting the surface.
Also on view are short works by Jocelyn and Penelope including a new duet for themselves that will open the show. Among other offerings are Jocelyn's ...and then we were left, a song cycle about the Lost Boys of Sudan, commissioned and performed by Virginia-based baritone Tadd Sipes with video by Justin Schell; and Penelope's Paper Nautilus, the critically acclaimed solo for 2011 McKnight Dancer Fellow Nic Lincoln.
Slippery Fish is a quartet for two dancers and two musicians. In addition to Penelope Freeh, the cast includes NYC-based Bessie Award winner Patrick Corbin (dancer), local McKnight Musician Fellow Carrie Henneman Shaw (soprano) and MN Orchestra violist Sam Bergman.
