Award winning Idaho composer Jim Cockey premieres Corona, a four movement work for string quartet inspired by and based on a short story by science-fiction author Samuel R. Delany. The story centers on two characters, who end up in a hospital for very different reasons. These two distinctly but intensely pained individuals meet and give solace to each other. Choreographed by artistic director Marla Hansen, Corona features the entire company and guest dancer/choreographer, Sayoko Knode, in addition to video components created by Alyssa Tolman.
Los Angeles-based composer, Thomas Kresge, a Boise native, premieres Gem, a work for piano, sax, bass, violin and drums that blends contemporary classical music with music inspired by films and video games, choreographed by Yurek Hansen for the IDT dancers.
Guest choreographer Sayoko Knode collaborates with the Boise band Lounge on Fire, who will be performing live. The band will accompany Sayoko’s work exploring the excitement and struggles of an individual who acts against his better judgment in pursuit of his desires.
Dancer/choreographer Sam Mughrabi also premieres a new work, his first for IDT.
