Collaboration with Greg Saunier, drummer of the band Deerhoof
BOOMERANG, hailed as the “punk Mozarts of dance,” and Greg Saunier, drummer in the internationally acclaimed band Deerhoof, have two work-in-progress performances of movement and sound this fall. One was at Roulette October 26th and the other is at Danspace Project November 21st. This work, commissioned by Dixon Place, combines the kinesthetic artistry of dancers Matty Davis and Adrian Galvin, nuanced choreography by Kora Radella, and visceral percussion by Saunier. Saunier’s charged yet sensitive physicality as a percussionist mirrors the essential dynamics that have come to mark BOOMERANG’s oeuvre. Both his musical contributions and movement will be incorporated and developed as part of this new work that is being further created at Robert Wilson's Watermill Center and will premiere at Dixon Place in March 2016.
