Capture/Release, was an evening of five newly composed works, including one music and two dance world premieres, with Lar Lubovitch and his critically acclaimed Dance Company, in honor of his 45th Anniversary with the Company and his 50th year in dance, for the River to River Festival.  Tucker provided the video and projection design for the evening, featuring live performances by Ransom Wilson’s acclaimed group, Le Train Bleu, with special guests: vocalist Helga Davis, violinist Cornelius Dufallo, percussionist Pablo Rieppi, Ian David Rosenbaum, marimba, and Kronos Quartet cellist Jeffrey Zeigler.

As Sleep Befell is a world premiere dance with music by composer Paola Prestini and choreography by Lar Lubovitch (choreography commissioned by VisionIntoAart). The dance features vocalist Helga Davis, Cornelius Dufallo, Pablo Rieppi, and Jeffrey Zeigler with a large ensemble, and the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company. As Sleep Befell is inspired by the adhan, both a Middle Eastern call to prayer sung by muezzin to summon people to the mosque and a song that Islamic fathers sing to their newborns.

LIgNEouS 1 for Marimba and String Quartet by composer Andy Akiho and featuring marimba player Ian David Rosenbaum, re-imagines the marimba through a woody assemblage of no-headed mallets. Described by the The New York Times as “mold-breaking” and “vital,” this quartet is not to be missed.

Lar Lubovitch’s Crisis Variations with music by composer Yevgeniy Sharlat is an award-winning and chillingly psychological work that the choreographer describes as an “action painting.”

Capture/Release is a new work and world premiere commissioned by VisionIntoArt for the River To River Festival. Composed by Daniel Wohl, this work explores the concept of music captured and dance released.
