Diva Art Picks: March

/ /

One of Team Diva Real Estate‘s favorite Seattle moments is attending a Donald Byrd discussion right after a  Spectrum Dance Theater’s studio performance. Donald has a voracious intellect and consumes an incredible amount of media, music and books. The combination of Donald’s creative intellect and his drive for dancer perfection has created one of the most consuming dance experiences we have ever seen. During these post performance discussions one is taken on how a performance was created by various influences including Donald’s own want to create a theatrical experience for the audience. The experience of the audience (both good and bad) is really the aim of Donal’s work. He wants you to walk away feeling something and be transformed on some level.

Spectrum Dance Theater is performing The Mother of Us All at the Moore this weekend. Our words do not do justice to Spectrum’s description of the performance Spectrum Dance Theater returns to The Moore Theatre in March with a cheeky prat-fall down the rabbit hole of contemporary Africa. Using a kaleidoscopic mixture of dance, music, spoken words and gripping imagery, Artistic Director Donald Byrd plumbs the complexities of modern Africa in an evening of dance|theater that will defy the status quo as it entertains and challenges audiences. The Mother of Us All features live music with a newly commissioned score by composer Byron Au Yong. Don’t miss your chance to experience this world premiere event!” Read more ->
