(WATCH) WHAT BETTER THAN CALL A DANCE PT 1 WITH KARIN STEVENS

In April 2018 Karin Stevens Dance collaborated with longtime friends/colleagues/collaborations Kin of the Moon (KOTM) and Beth Fleenor to create “What Better Than Call a Dance,” a performance inspired by the relationship of dance to music, and how they two inform one another.

One of the fascinating aspects of the classical music tradition is examining and reworking historical practices. KOTM reworked Renaissance dance, the waltz, the tango, and EDM through its own lens, utilizing electronics, clapping games, recorded and filtered samples, multiple acoustic instruments, and improvisation, as well as through-composed new music by Heather Bentley and Kaley Lane Eaton. The through-composed works were interspersed with improvisations featuring Beth Fleenor (solo) with Karin Stevens (Dance).
