“duende at home” is a series of videos made remotely over three months. Each video began as a single musical or physical idea passed from one artist to another in a virtual game of telephone, creating work that expresses the time lived by the artists at home compressed into isolated vignettes.
Described as a “full artistic experience” (Broad Street Review) with “creations that dazzle,” (Dance Journal) duende is a new music and contemporary dance collective co-founded by composer Alyssa Weinberg, cellist Gabriel Cabezas, and dancer/choreographer Chloe Perkes. Duende’s work is driven by the exploration of each other’s artistic processes, creating performances that amplify each discipline by combining them while offering multiple entry points into the worlds of music and dance.
Audience members can view the livestream by following the link to our Facebook page. Recommended for ages 13+.
