“re-Source” – Christian Swenson & Friends play Human Jazz
This is not a dance performance, a sacred ritual or a play, nor a musical concert or a comedy show, yet it is in part all of these. It is also homage to the human medium and the spirit that connects us.
Join Christian & his friends (William “Bill” Evans, Shura Baryshnikov, Laurie Amat, Ali Kenner Brodsky, Michelle Struckholz, Elizabeth Keisler and Corinne Wahlberg) as they co-create an evening of spontaneous performance.
“Human Jazz” is about playing the body, voice and imagination simultaneously; no set pieces, special costumes, recorded music, just humans playing. As a soloist Christian “disappears” into songs, animals, characters, body music, aliens, etc. The ensemble will play all together and in smaller groupings. The show will conclude with a participatory Balinese Kecak/Monkey Chant.
This event is a fundraiser for AS220 Youth and all profits will go to supporting this important program.
