KSD is thrilled to work with longtime friends/colleagues/collaborations Kin of the Moon (KOTM) and Beth Fleenor to create “What Better Than Call a Dance,” a performance inspired by the relationship of dance to music, and how they two inform one another. The long form performance will be an alternation of improvisations from Fleenor/Stevens and new dance-inspired works from KOTM. One of the fascinating aspects of the classical music tradition is examining and reworking historical practices. KOTM will be reworking Renaissance dance, the waltz, the tango, and EDM through its own lens, utilizing electronics, clapping games, recorded and filtered samples, multiple acoustic instruments, and improvisation, as well as through-composed new music by Heather Bentley and Kaley Lane Eaton.

Artist Statement

Movement is the impetus as life is the content. Through layers of movement is the thread of truth; the sole story, the shape and texture of feeling and meaning. Beneath the motion is etched the lines of our grief and grandeur in this 21st century imperfect, moving human art form. The purpose of our relationship to creation is revealed. Beautiful. Infinite. Moving. Live. Turbulent. Grace.

“Karin is the consummate artist professional: easy to work with, warm, enthusiastic, imaginative, and above of all, supremely competent. The result… a memorable experience for performers and audiences alike.”

-John Zoltek Music Director, Glacier Symphony and Festival Amadeus Whitefish, Montana
