Description

A VIP reception (vaccination and proof required) in the Community Room will follow the performance, and include an artist meet and greet with drinks and light hors d’oeuvres to be served. In addition, a community edge will be taught by IDI company members, an event for all. All events will follow NH State Guidelines for Covid. Masks are required for performance and edge class. 

The performance will premiere two works created with the support of Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center.  The first, called ‘Experience’, with music by Ludovico Einaudi, was choreographed March 9-14, 2020, the week the world shut down due to the pandemic. The company’s performance and intended premier of ‘Experience’, scheduled on Saturday March 14th, 2020, was canceled along with the rest of the IDI tour planned for that spring.

The second piece to premier will be created by 4-time World Champion, Kurt Browning, during September 13-18, 2021 in Stowe, vT.  Says Kurt Browning about the new piece, with the working title ‘Physical Farce’, “Whenever given the chance, I’m a very happy person when I can combine two of my favorite things: skating and laughter.” The score of the piece is being created by Jonathan Galland of Bending Reed Music. Mr. Galland also created the score of IDI’s Solstice.

The evening will also include Douglas Webster, IDI’s Executive and Artistic Director’s piece ‘Revival’, created during the pandemic and performed in pop-ups engagements in New Hampshire while the company was in residence at Strawbery Banke Museum in winter 2021. The piece, with music by Mumford and Sons, is about community and hope. IDI company members will also perform solos and duets to round out the evening. These pieces will feature IDI repertory ‘Reflections’, created by Benoit Richaud; ‘Till the End’, created by Rohene Ward; and ‘Primavera’, created by Douglas Webster and works created by IDI company members.
