Sea Ghosts

Driven by the nuanced textures of William Harper’s electroacoustic music, The Gallowing Sea, this dance delves wildly into a mythical underwater world. The set design, by visual artist Calvin Grimm, features a projected painting from his Deep Ocean/Deep Space series.

Press Quote:

“William Harper’s eerie music, which integrates ocean sounds, and Calvin Grimm’s explosive abstract painting, projected as a backdrop, conjure up an otherworldly setting in which the dancers float and writhe. They form a giant sea anemone with wriggling arms as tentacles, undulate like the segments of a sea serpent and rise and fall with the sound of waves.” Times Union
