Yesterday was the first time Sarah's new string quartet piece for dancer Lucy Rupert was heard. The free concert at The Canadian Opera Company's Richard Bradshaw theare was packed with an audience made up of both the young and old.
15 minute excerpt of the 30 minute piece was performed. The title of the dance that will be shown at the Enwave Theatre is titled 'The animals are planning an intervention.' The music that was was very well received was most closely comparable with The Disarm Suite. In the Q&A session following the dance Lucy advised the first time she heard the song being played in rehersal she had a connection with it.
The song has been recorded by some familiar names of Sarah's past albums with Drew Jurecka (The Baroness), Karen Graves (Day One/Orphan Music/Blue Spruce) Kathleen Kajioka and Amy Laing (Art of Time).
Danceworks performance of the entire piece on April 7-9 at the Enwave Theatre.
