Performing Arts

Published 1/30/19

Claude Debussy initiated the Impressionistic style of music in the end of the 19th Century and is seen as the founder of musical impressionism – that of evoking a mood using harmony and tone color. “Music is the space between the notes.” (Debussy) Like in music, the artist, Duaiv sees visual art as the space between the brush strokes.

Hailed as “a spectacle that upends any attempt to pin it down” by Broadway World, La Medea portrays not a dangerous foreigner, but an infinite woman rejecting the gaze imposed upon her. This spring, in The Fourth Light, Persian electroacoustic duo Niyaz team up with interactive design artist Jerome Delapierre for an immersive tribute to the under-recognized first female Sufi mystic and poet. Live music, sacred dance and advance technologies help merge the real and the virtual for a multi-sensory spiritual experience. Last month, the season opened—gothically—with The Black …
