Periapsis Music and Dance presents "The Portrait Project," a set of six new works for solo dancer and solo musician sharing the stage. Each was created by a different guest choreographer in collaboration with a commissioned composer. Join us for an evening of music and dance conceived and performed as one!

The program will also include an excerpt of a group work by resident choreographers Erin Dillon and Hannah Weber. A post-performance discussion will conclude each evening's program.

Guest choreographers:
Joshua Beamish, Seán Curran, Miro Magloire, Helen Simoneau, Katarzyna Skarpetowska, Manuel Vignoulle

Richard Carrick, Shawn Jaeger, Jonathan Howard Katz, Mary Kouyoumdjian

Music for three works from The Portrait Project was commissioned by the Charles and Joan Gross Family Foundation.
