3Seasons Music Insights


Check out Victoria Brown’s insightful post about the music for 3Seasons premiered by Whim W’him at On the Boards last month. Brown’s thoughts encourage me, especially the idea that in fiction there is a suspicion of stories that have “too happy an ending.”

I am grateful that she recognizes how the “unnerving” and “weird” new music fits the uncomfortable intent of 3Seasons. The performance brings the dancers and audience closer together through the state of missing the recognizable comfort of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons.

Brown’s post is enlivened by photographs by Kim and Adam Bamberg of La Vie Photography. I am fond of this image where Jim Kent plays the violin with a birdcage on his head during the second section of Autumn.
