Brian Webb Dance Company presents Broken Sound²
February 24, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - February 27, 2016 @ 10:00 pm$35
Broken Sound² is a collaboration created and performed by acclaimed dancer Brian Webb, with intermedia artist Gary James Joynes, whose installations and performances have been wowing audiences all over North America. A duet by two of Edmonton’s most celebrated risk takers, Broken Sound² is performed in an intimate environment where audience members join performers in a dialogue on aging and intimacy.
This is the first time Gary is performing his Broken Sound² score live, and Brian is animating the luscious environment with his articulated dance. Gary and Brian even sing together, preceded by a very personal conversation between the two men.
Dance, the oldest art form, the most basic expression of human joy and sadness, is put in the same arena as the latest in sound and visual technology. Broken Sound² is an intersection between what is most primal and what is most innovative. It celebrates creativity, the risk and the adventure of the new; it defines these two local, celebrated Edmonton artists as true mavericks, explorers and leaders of contemporary expression. But, more importantly, Broken Sound² invites audiences to experience the intimate connection between two men who work to express their aliveness in the here and now.
