Boston Dance Theater Co-director/Choreographer Jessie Jeanne Stinnett teams up with Artistic Director of Sound Icon Ensemble Jeffrey Means for a commission initiated by Goethe-Institut Boston to create a site-specific, 45 minute dance work set to musical selections by iconic German composers. The piece will be performed live by BDT and Sound Icon during the opening festivities of Goethe-Institut’s newly restored Back Bay building on November 1 and 2, 2019.

This commission both responds to, and draws the audience’s attention to, the obvious and understated elements of the historical building’s architecture through the techniques of improvisation, Dance Theater, and contemporary choreography.
