KH&D at NEVER BEFORE, NEVER AGAIN on January 5

KH&D has some beautiful structured improvisation in store for you at Triskelion's Never Before, Never Again festival this week! Here's what I have to say about the dance:

Katelyn Halpern & Dancers presents an intimate world of improvised dance in Under the Cover of Night. Twin riverheads of egoless movement and stream-of-consciousness speech propel the dance score and invite tender, joyful performance choices; composer Elliot Cole accompanies the dance with a live, responsive electronic sound score. Under the Cover of Night is part of Katelyn Halpern & Dancers’ ongoing work with language and movement.

Two Voices / San Franciscoed <3

We did our K A T E S thing last night at Switchboard Presents out in San Francisco. In the set we did some piano banging, some talky-talking, and some dancy-musicky styling. It looked kind of like this --> 

I should also say that on this concert we gave the official world premiere performance of Two Voices, which is a semi-dramatic near-dialog concerning two women trying to talk about their shared past and future. The text is by me and music for prepared digital piano is by my composer collaborator Leila Adu. I started this piece in a bald effort to copy the wonders that I've seen from writer/composer/performer Paul Pinto over the last year; happily, Two Voices turned into something of its own along the way. It's a piece I'm really proud of, and I hope I get to share it with you soon.
