In honor of Owen/Cox Dance Group and newEar Contemporary Chamber Ensemble merging their talents, our two reviewers, Laura Vernaci and Lee Hartman, offer a he said/she said of their own.
Laura Vernaci’s Dance Take:
Owen/Cox Dance Group and newEar Contemporary Chamber Ensemble combined forces in front of a full house Friday night at the H&R Block City Stage Theater at Union Station. Chromatic Collaboration, the first performance for this partnership, brought together Owen/Cox’s fresh choreography and unique concepts with newEar’s eccentric and colorful instrumental compositions. Two of the six works in the mixed program spotlighted individual musical selections while the other four showcased the groups’ unified presentations.
