About this program
Re:Imagine extends across art forms, space and time, reuniting violist/composer Kathryn Patricia and dancer/choreographer Elizabeth Emond-Stevenson in a live dance-music collaboration.
With the goal of reanimating still and silent public spaces, Kathryn and Elizabeth explore classical and improvised forms, sharing impulses, reacting and responding to their surroundings through a multidisciplinary performance of the solo repertoire of J.S. Bach. This dance and viola duo captures the traditional beauty of the music and its integrity, while interpreting the score with a modern lens through the intersectional voices of two contemporary female artists and their use of fragmentation, improvisation and responsiveness.
Through this project, they ‘reimagine’ the solo works of Bach through a movement lens, and through the interpretation of two women artists. Re:Imagine brings the experience of art and beauty into the everyday lives of our community. Re:Imagine explores the concept of what it looks like to bring all parts of ourselves to our art-making– to breathe and listen and move together to create a new future of engagement within the arts.
This work invites viewers to rethink old ways and ultimately to reimagine our present as a collective. Re:Imagine is reinterpreting classical forms, promoting arts accessibility and welcoming joy into our personal and public spaces.
