James Martin Music/Dance, in collaboration with pianist Eliza Garth, presents The Enchanted Piano: Dances for Piano with Electronics, Piano Strings, and Amplified Piano on October 21 and 22 at 8pm at the Manhattan Movement & Arts Center at 248 W. 60th Street, NYC (between Amsterdam and West End Avenues) in the Lincoln Center area. Tickets are $20 ($15 for students, seniors and dancers) and are available at www.manhattanmovement.com or by phone at 212-787-1178.
The Enchanted Piano features music by major American composers, each a pioneer in his time: Aeolian Harp and Fleeting by Henry Cowell; Eine Kleine Mitternachtmusik by George Crumb; Synchronisms No. 6 by Mario Davidovsky; and Chamber Symphony by Maurice Wright. Performed by five dancers and Eliza Garth, The Enchanted Piano utilizes classical, contemporary and post-modern dance styles. Structure and patterns are plotted with human relationships to change the way the viewer/listener hears the music through the various pieces in this suite. The dance and music are two tributaries that flow into a single pool of thoughts and feelings.
