Cynthia Word And Brian Ganz Explore Movement In Sound And Space
8/31/2018, 6 a.m.
ANNAPOLIS Modern dancer Cynthia Word and concert pianist Brian Ganz will perform together in a creative fusion of art and music in “Movement in Sound and Space,” Sunday, September 2, 2018 at 3 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis (UUCA) located at 333 Dubois Road in Annapolis.
Through Ganz’s performance of classical compositions for piano and Word’s dance performance the two artists invite the audience inside the collaborative process, as they explore the dynamic relationship between expressive movement in space and sound.
Both Word and Ganz are award-winning artists in their respective genres and have performed widely both nationally and internationally.
The program includes the choreography of Isadora Duncan set to preludes, mazurkas and etudes of Chopin and improvised movement inspired by works of the Spanish master Enrique Granados.
Cynthia Word is founder and artistic director of the Washington, D.C.-based Word Dance Theater, a cross-disciplinary performing arts company engaging dancers, playwrights, actors, musicians, and media artists in creating original and dynamic theatrical productions and continuing the legacy of Isadora Duncan’s technique and spirit.
Internationally acclaimed classical pianist Brian Ganz has appeared as soloist with the St. Louis Symphony, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, the Baltimore Symphony, the National Philharmonic, and the National Symphony among many other credits. He is perhaps best known locally for his decade-long adventure to perform the complete works of Frédéric Chopin in collaboration with the National Philharmonic at the Strathmore Music Center in North Bethesda.
The performance is part of the UUCA Arts in the Woods music series offered monthly on first Sunday of each month. Tickets are $15 at the door; free for 16 and under. For more information, call: 410-266-8044 or visit: www.uuannapolis.org.
