Bonnie Lander (soprano) and Batya Macadam-Somer (violin):

About “Kafka Fragments”: Composed in the 1980’s by Hungarian composer György Kurtág, Kafka Fragments is a concert-length chamber piece for voice and violin comprised 40 miniature works that each set a different fragment of text from Franz Kafka’s journals and letters.
an interdisciplinary artist and educator based in Baltimore, Maryland. He creates movement based performances, dances, but they are not really dances. He has trained with Butoh dancers, contact improvisors, clowns, and he skateboarded for years. He is trying not to fall down as much.
He is currently touring the first section of his newest solo project. It has a working title, “The Audition.” It is an investigation into the show biz machine.
Thomas Patteson + Aaron Pond are buds spiraling out from soil in delicate procedures. The difference- small. Both befriend the spirit of the sun. Thomas channels UV rays through circuits into pure aurality. Aaron makes petals ruminate.
