Our dear friends Beth Fleenor, clarinetist/improviser extraordinaire and Kin of the Moon join Karin Stevens Dance to wildly reimagine dance music from the Renaissance, the waltz, to tango, to EDM and the present. Newly created music from KOTM’s technology-friendly, improvisation-centric minds alternates with improvised music/dance from Beth and Karin in an uninterrupted performance at our beloved musical living room, the Chapel Performance Space.

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.
