Music: Alphonse Izzo
Dance: Jessica Bonenfant
Alphonse Izzo remembers hearing Straussâ Thus Spake Zarathustra as a boy while staring at a tank of gold fish swimming in endless circles. Heâs attempted to recreate that strange and beautiful juxtaposition through his music ever since. His compositions have been performed in the USA, Canada and abroad and his music also appears on CD through the Paris based Trace Label. Ground was composed by imagining the sound of a Harpsichord attempting to break out of its own sonic cage.
Jessica Bonenfant makes dances here, there and everywhere. She is Creative Director of Odonata Dance Project and one half of Greenfield & Bon: Purveyors of Fine Dance Theatre, a Brooklyn based duo that performs, tours and educates with a focus on collaboratively created dance theatre and contemporary partnering.
