Choreographer Jennifer Owen and pianist Kairy Koshoeva obviously have a rapport. Koshoeva’s performance of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations inspired Owen to create some of her most critically acclaimed choreography.
Translated as “Play of Tones” or “Tonal Game,” “Ludus Tonalis” is considered Hindemith’s “Well-Tempered Clavier.” The music’s elaborate patterning should lend itself well to Owen’s inventive choreography. Koshoeva will perform Hindemith’s highly contrapuntal score live. Stick around after the performance for a free “artist talk” at 3:45 p.m. Owen is articulate and entertaining when describing her art and creative process.
