How freaking cool is this? The next two nights (Fri., October 16th & Sat., October 17th), the good people over at DiverseWorks are hosting a music/dance performance piece called Heaven, created by Minneapolis- based choreographer Morgan Thorson, lighting designer Lenore Doxsee, set/costume designer Emmet Ramstad, and -- wait for it -- musicians/composers Alan Sparhawk & Mimi Parker.
The latter, of course, are basically the core of legendary slowcore band Low, whom I've loved & adored literally for more than a decade now, ever since my days as a wee young student and KTRU DJ. Those awesomely delicate, drifting melodies, the heartbreaking duet vocals...they blew my mind back then, and it's still blown now.
I can't claim to grasp the overall theme of Thorson's piece real well, beyond the bit about "transformation," but with Sparhawk and Parker providing all-new original music and "vocal orchestration," it promises to be, well, really freaking cool. And for those who're better-versed in the dance world than yours truly, Thorson apparently is a rising star in the world of choreography
Best of all, if you happen to be short of funds due to our currently horribly variable economy, DiverseWorks is doing a "Pay What You Want" thing for all its performances this year...
