At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 20, the Rothko Chapel will be transformed into a stage for "Breath," a site-specific piece exploring the dynamics and subtleties of what life is at its essence, created by the Transitory Sound and Movement Collective. "We never perform our pieces more than one time," artistic director Lynn Lane said.
"And at this point we don't create multiple evening events. This keeps the work fresh and spontaneously in the moment."Each time the collective of musicians, sound artists, dancers, vocalists and visual artists comes together, it's to create a one-time only experience.A public reception on the plaza will follow the performance. The pay-what-you-can event has a suggested value of $20. Lane said that a large ensemble of highly accomplished creatives will collaborate in the performance, including movement artists Jennifer Mabus and Erica Gionfriddo.
Sound artists will include Julia Fox (soprano), Ingrid Gerling, Nathan Watts, Thomas Frey, Caitlin Merhtens and Brandon Bell. Lane will also perform in the piece. Costumes are by Cherie Acosta.
