“Body of Sound” Review and Looking Toward “Eternal Dialogue”!

In July 2010, Delusions presented “‘Body of Sound” at the Dairy Center for the Arts in Boulder, CO to two nearly sold out and very enthusiastic audiences. The show explored the relation between musicians and dancers and the living entity of a Body of Sound that surrounds us in the vibrations of live string music. The production integrated live musicians onstage with the dancers and original film. Many of the pieces presented were world premieres and have since been performed in many other venues and shows. Invited choreographers that joined this project included long-time artist to Boulder and award winner Barbara Demaree, dancers of David Taylor Dance Theatre (Jennifer Kuhn, Gina Eslinger (now dancing at Ballet Ariel) and Kevin Burke, dancers of Boulder Ballet  (Katelyn Burgess, Rob Kuykendall, and Annalise Woller (now dancing at Dayton Ballet), and dancer and current member of the Board of Directors for Contemporary Ballet Dallas, Michael Levy. Many of the pieces were accompanied by live string music with musicians from Boulder’s local Swedish fiddle groups Carnelian and from the school Spelmanslag. Read a glowing review for “Body of Sound” from Don Atwood at World Dance Reviews:
