60x60 Dance @ the Winter Garden, NYC (11/14/08) [McFerron/Richards]

Henry's Trai(p)(f)(m)
Music: Mike McFerron
Dance: Cathy Richards

Henry's Trai(p)(f)(m) is an attempt to capture just a small fraction of the excitement and fascination that my two-year old has with trains. Mike McFerron is an associate professor of music and composer-in- residence at Lewis University and he is founder and co-director of Electronic Music Midwest. A past fellow the MacDowell Colony, June in Buffalo, and the Chamber Music Conference of the East/Composers’ Forum, honors include, among others, first prize in the Louisville Orchestra Composition Competition, first prize in the CANTUS commissioning/residency program, and recipient of the CCF Abelson Vocal Music Commission. Cathy Verdicia Richards likes to experiment with numbers and shapes in an emotionally open space. Her choreography has been seen at the Bushwick Starr, in the Cool New York 2007, Chashama's OASIS 2007, 2006, and 2005 Festival, DUMBO 2007, 2006, and 2005 Festival, BAM Local Development/ Chashama's 2005 Outside Art Festival, Merce Cunningham Studio. Salma Allam is the co-director of DefiANCE and a founding member of Movement in C. Last fall she toured with Don Omar through North and South America, and performed in the independent film The Great Observer and feature film Bolden. Dancers: Salma Allam and Cathy Verdicia Richards
