Two performances of “Where (We) Live” were the culminating activity of the spring 2015 portion of “Branches,” So Percussion’s residency at the Fisher Center. These performances included special guests Emily Johnson, a Minneapolis-based choreographer and dancer; director Ain Gordon; and guitarist Grey McMurray. In addition, a craftsperson from our region “performed” each evening by creating his or her work on-stage with the band. Shown in this video is ceramicist Caroline Wallner.
These multidisciplinary performances engaged enthusiastic attendees with a wide range of interests from across our campus and local area. In addition, this project contributed significantly to the Fisher Center’s contemporary music offerings. We look forward to continuing and developing this residency framework, which features creation, education, and performance.
We are very grateful to New Music USA and our project partners for their support.
