In their seventh season, Michigan-based Traverse City Dance Project mkaes their East Coast debut. Conceived in NYC seven years ago, founders and co-artistic directors Jennifer McQuiston Lott (LA) and Brent Whitney (NYC) have gathered top dance artists from NYC, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, and Michigan, making it a true tri-coastal endeavor.
This unique program features world premieres by Brent Whitney and Jennifer McQuiston Lott, a new commission by guest choreographer Austin Joseph Reynolds (Detroit, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet), live music by the multi-instrumentalist Jonny Rodgers, acclaimed for his skill in playing the glass harp, and performances by avant-garde ensemble Tenth Intervention (Hajnal Pivnik & Dorian Wallace). In addition, the program will feature a piece created by Jakevis Thomason and internationally-acclaimed drummer Ian Chang, the first recipients of our choreographic fellowship #Pairings, which connects emerging choreographers and composers, giving them time, space, and funds to create a new work on the dancers of TCDP.
For dance and music lovers alike, this one is not to be missed!
