With commissioned score by virtuosity musicians and dancers who push the boundaries of their art forms: cellist Jessie
Reagen Mann, multi-instrumentalist and human beat boxer Pete List and recorder player Daphna Mor – the sky’s the limit. This piece is extraordinarily stunning when performed with live musicians.
Dorfman uses this eclectic and unusual grouping of artists, their instruments, sounds, and vocals, to create new and visceral movement connections – WAVES – between her dancers, the music and the dance.
WAVES had its World Premiere on March 13, 2015 at NJPAC (New Jersey Performing Arts Center).
