The Art of Fugue by ZviDance

THE ART OF FUGUE is an evening-length, multimedia dance performance. It is a collaboration between Artistic Director, Zvi Gotheiner; eight dancers; Composer, Scott Killian; Lighting Designer, Mark London; and Media Designer, Joshua Higgason. Gotheiner utilizes the seminal Johann Sebastian Bach’s The Art of Fugue as a point of departure to conceive a choreographic exploration that highlights the individual contribution of each of his creative team. In music, a fugue is a contrapuntal composition in which a short melody is introduced by one voice and successively taken up by others. Gotheiner will introduce this compositional structure as a metaphor to portray a non-hierarchical society. Killian integrates electronic original music with Bach, anchoring the work in contemporary culture. Higgason’s live and pre-recorded video projection adds an additional “voice” to the complexity of the canonic composition.
