Abstract

Interdisciplinary collaboration is critical for the growth and development of any artist. It provides a space to engage in a conversation among art forms, where each participant has shared ownership in the creative process. Ultimately, we leave the conversation enriched and inspired to approach our craft in a new manner.

This piece contains three contiguous sections, and the interplay between composed and improvised material characterizes each section. The three dancers are staged in a triangular formation, with the violist in the center. The first section begins with the violist introducing the melodic and rhythmic material indicated by the composer. The violist will turn and face each dancer, which cues the dancer to begin improvised movements in reaction to the violist's playing style. The second section switches the roles as the violist improvises in response to each dancer's choreographed movements. In the third section, the violist and dancers perform together, in a blend of composed music and choreographed dance movements.
