Making Dance: The Future Starts Now
The San Diego Symphony’s annual January Festival returns in its fourth year entitled, Hearing the Future. Throughout the festival, which runs January 9 - 27, 2019, the organization explores and celebrates the power of music and art to give voice to the evolution and revolutions in the world at large. The festival, curated by composer-conductor Matthew Aucoin (b.1990), will shine a spotlight on the music being made today – from composers and performers who are still in high school, to a 90-year-old jazz master. The festival will also explore the way music from the past — from Haydn, Beethoven and Berlioz to the creators of African-American spirituals — engaged with the most urgent issues of their time.
Making Dance: The Future Starts Now - Presented by Malashock Dance in partnership with Vanguard Culture. In this intimate event, audience members will witness what is almost always kept private – the initial creation of a new dance work. This rare peek into the creative process will illuminate how movement is created from scratch, ‘on the spot’ by the choreographer with his dancers. Experience dance in a new way when choreographer John Malashock creates new choreography set to music by festival curator Matthew Aucoin.
