In continuing to explore the interplay among the arts, this event will add a new element. Michele Walther will present some of her original " looper" compositions for violin, with dance interpretations / inspirations by Mark Galvan, a contemporary dancer and instructor. All of which will be presented in the gallery, surrounded by the current exhibit "Four Square".

What's the music?

This performance is a presentation of music, dance, painting and poetry. Paintings of the art exhibition will become part of the performance.

Michele Walther - violin and live looping & Mark Galvan - dance will perform music by Corelli, Piazzolla, and originals, paired with expressive Japanese Butoh dance theatre.

Live looping works like a "one-woman-orchestra", with Michele playing multiple parts at the same time.

The performance will feature evocative music and dance with the theme Darkness & Light - the Cycle of Life.

Thank you so much for everyone who came to see us perform! We had a great time and really appreciated you and the wonderful space! Also a big thank you to Jeff who hosted us, and to Mike, the gallery owner.

Dear Michele,
I really enjoyed this performance. Your music was wonderful, and I found the story the man who performed the dance provided, and his movements, very touching and inspiring.
At the event, I mentioned I felt you would enjoy the music of Maya Baiser, and found myself listening again to her work on a Spotify station I created to do so. In addition to Maya Baiser, I would highly recommend the work of another musical artist, Julia Kent, as she is a violinist rather than a cellist (Baiser is a cellist), with some striking similarisities to your own style. Wishing you happy listening!
