Music: Alex Shapiro
Dance: Jessica Desmond and Samantha MacIvor
"Life is short. Fleas are short. This piece is short. Three terrific Los Angeles musicians of moderate height make these performing insects dance for you: clarinetist Berkeley Price, violinist Nancy Roth, and pianist Deon Nielsen Price. Step right up! A trio awaits to amuse you with their amazing antics! No fleas were harmed in the making of this music. A resident of Washington state's San Juan Island, Alex Shapiro aligns note after note with the hope that a few of them might sound good next to each other. Jessica Desmond graduated from Hunter College with a BA in Dance/Media Studies. She continues to create dance works with various artists. Co-Founder of Fertile Ground Performance series at Micro Museum. Performance experience: Ron K. Brown, Sally Silvers, Sondra Loring, Tere O'Connor and Twyla Tharp.?
