Arts ON AIR livestreams 2021 Higher Ground Festival: “Lighter Than Sound”

Brian Morales and DoubleTake Dance
Lighter Than Sound is a contemporary ballet piece set to Brian Morales’s composition Wrapped. Choreographed by Vanessa Martínez de Baños and Ashley Carter the piece is purely based on movement to music without limitations and endeavors to show the wonderful aspect of music, its power and visual expression combined with the beauty of dance; technical, fierce, powerful and athletic. As the music is a string orchestra recording interwoven with electronic soundscapes and improvised music added through input, the choreography was created by using the pre-written music for structure all while sandwiching it within soundscapes created in real-time. This then becomes a work that is both a choreographed performance-ready piece that incorporates improvised, performative elements for the composer and dancers; cultivating an “every time is different” vibe.

Higher Ground Festival brings Northern Manhattan artists together to network and create interdisciplinary collaborations that are presented free to the community. This will be HGF’s 6th year as a notable arts festival in the upper Manhattan community.

“What defines a stage these days? Gabrielle Lamb’s richly detailed movement has found a perfect home on a 5×8-foot Persian rug.” (DANCE Magazine)

Pigeonwing Dance’s Carpet Series, for five highly-trained contemporary ballet dancers, is a compact popup performance rich in detail, complexity and virtuosity. Developed during and in response to the pandemic, the works take place on and around a 5 x 8 Persian carpet, with choreography by 2020 Guggenheim Fellow Gabrielle Lamb and accompanied by New York City Ballet Musician, Derek Ratzenboeck. 

The Carpet Series 2021 is made possible in part with funding from the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Development Corporation, as well as with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council
