Line through Limitation: experiencing Bach and Britten through cello and dance
The performance explores the works of Bach and Britten, who both compose suites that not only stretch the physical limits of the cello (and cellist), but also are self-limiting in their compositional techniques. This program focuses on those self-limiting attributes in Bach’s 5th cello suite and Britten’s 1st cello suite.
The dance plays a key role in helping the audience imagine and visualize some of the compositional ideas. With innovative seating and lighting, this music and dance pairing will give you new ways to see and hear.
Created and performed by Nitsan Margaliot and Steuart Pincombe, performed in Springfield, Missouri as part of William T. White Recital Series in MSU.
