Compass, Offering

from Two Things by ddb



A work by Sarah Woods and Bob LaDue
Created for 2 dancers, 2 Contrabass, Bb Clarinet, and Vibraphone.

It is an offering!
Stepping out, follow your heart.
Follow your intuition.
A counterpoint for what we see.
We draw the connection between us in strong and clear lines made of music and movement.
Here we make an opportunity.
Here we offer an direction.
Both from what is around us and what is inside of us
Moving around the house and describing what you see.

Compass, Offering

Bob LaDue and Sarah Woods have created a piece of music & movement named "Compass, Offering"


Mark Clifford: Vibraphone
Jason Hoopes: Contrabass
Max Judelson: Contrabass
Jason Gillenwater: Bb Clarinet
Sarah Woods & Bob LaDue: Composition, Choreography, Conducting, and Dance.

Sarah is an experienced dancer, and Bob a musician. Bob & Sarah wish to create a work that encompasses both of these aspects together as the substance of the work. Avoiding the concept of music written to support the dance, or vice-versa. 'Compass, Offering' attempts to establish the environment where the music and movement are part of the same essential substance of composition/choreography.

The Music has someting to do with this:
