Laguna Art Museum Music and Dance Concert Thursday


Laguna Art Museum Presents a Music and Dance Concert this Thursday August 14 2014 at 7:00pm. This event is free for museum members, and free for non-members with museum admission
Laguna Art Museum, Laguna Beach Live!, and Laguna Dance Festival have joined forces to commission an original music-and-dance piece inspired by a work of art from the museum’s collection. The organizations have worked closely together to embrace the challenge of ekphrasis, the interpretation of a work of art in another art form.
For this performance, choreographer Bernard Gaddis presents a new choreographic work to an original score by composer Alan Chan, both inspired by Lotus Land, a 1967 oil painting by Lee Mullican from Laguna Art Museum’s collection. The dance piece will be previewed in simplified form at the museum on August 14, following a concert of Chan’s composition performed by the Argus Quartet. After the performance, Gaddis, Chan, and representatives from Laguna Art Museum, Laguna Beach Live!, and Laguna Dance Festival will be present for a discussion with the audience.
The first fully-produced, on-stage performance of Ekphrasis will take place as part of the Laguna Dance Festival Gala Performance on Saturday, September 13. Click here for more information.
