Ash Danceworks presents Beethoven Recnstrctd
Ash Danceworks debuts its inaugural season with an electronic re-imagining of Beethoven's "Violin Concerto in D," choreographed by Rebecca French with nine dancers and interactive projections.
The "Violin Concerto in D Major" was composed in 1806 and remains one of Beethoven’s most loved works. The concerto will be reconstructed electronically to create a bold, modern sound that will engage audiences of all ages and backgrounds. For the first time in Houston, the score will accompany live dance onstage, with breathtaking original choreography by Rebecca French and exciting interactive projections.
Building on the success of French’s "Rite of Summer," the critically acclaimed re-imagining of Stravinsky’s masterwork Rite of Spring with dynamic dancing and visual effects, Ash Danceworks will re-envision the revered Beethoven concerto for a new generation of art lovers. Expect to experience dance, music and video in a fresh new way. There will be a special guest performance by Group Acorde.
