Following our May concert, Primary Subject, I felt it was time for Sanspointe to do something new and unexpected. I immediately began looking for an alternate venue for our Fall concert. It wasn’t long until I was at Birmingham Museum of Art talking with Kristen Greenwood about the possibility of collaborating with the Museum to present a dance installation in their space…dances inspired by the museum itself.
Everything fell into place, and we are now rehearsing five new site-specific dances that will be presented in Kinetic Canvas. Several Sanspointe members, musicians and friends are collaborating on these works. Including live music, spoken word and of course dance and art, the 40 minute performance will be performed twice on Saturday, October 16th during the 2010 Fiesta event in Linn Park. Join us just inside the museum’s front doors for a lively, moving and cultural performance, suitable for the entire family.
