Founder's Day Concert

Metamorphosis
Third Coast Percussion

Choreography by Movement Art Is (Lil Buck and Jon Boogz)
Performed by Ron Myles & Quentin Robinson

This year our annual Founder’s Day concert honoring Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge offers something remarkable: a collaboration between the fearless Third Coast Percussion, electronic music producer/composer Jlin and Movement Art Is in a composed evening featuring dance and music by Glass, Jlin and Tyondai Braxton. With the experience shaped remotely during the pandemic, this natural marriage of dance and percussion delivers a shining example of flourishing creativity in the face of daunting circumstances. Paired with this performance is a new work composed for Third Coast Percussion by Gemma Peacocke, The threshold we cross with closed eyes.
