Bhairav is considered by some to be the most important raga in the Hindustani classical tradition. It is a morning raga, extremely solemn and portraying the peacefulness of a strong mind.

w/ Randall Winchester, Tibetan bowls

5 Studies in Carnatic Modes (1972), by Eugene Bozza

Carnatic music is a system of music commonly associated with the southern part of the Indian subcontinent. It is one of two main sub-genres of Indian classical music that evolved from ancient Hindu traditions. The main emphasis in Carnatic music is on vocal music; most compositions are written to be sung, and even when played on instruments, they are meant to be performed in gayaki (singing) style.

and then...

Chasing Dragons, Lynn Frederiksen choreography, and Randy Winchester, sound score and live trombone. Danced by Lynn and Paul. East meets West, history confronts information, texture triggers telemetry.

FREE - Informal Showing at The Dance Complex. Sunday, May 4th!FREE
Informal Showing

Sunday, May 4, 2014 at 2:00pm

Studio 1

Works choreographed by Heather Brown and Thasia Giles

Please join Massachusetts-based artists/choreographers Heather Brown and Thasia Giles on Sunday, May 4 at 2pm for a FREE informal studio showing of works-in-progress. Featured work will include a new variation of "Being" which was originally performed as part of a fundraiser for Spindle City Ballet.

Heather Brown's choreographic style is a fusion of ballet technique and modern dance movement. Her current works experiment with capturing the freedom and aesthetic afforded by a strong ballet base. Thasia Giles employs gesture and pedestrian phrasing to generate movement sequences.

Q&A with artists will follow the showing.

Did you dance for your Mother today?
The Dance Complex presents Dances for a Mother’s Day
on May 11, 2014, a 45-minute mother- friendly (and the rest of the family, too) program featuring ballet, modern, hip hop and flamenco dance.

April 12, 2014 - Cambridge, MA: Students and Teaching Artists from The Dance Complex’s Youth & Family Classes will take to the stage especially with Mom in mind in a 45-minute informal concert featuring the groups Always Be Dancing, led by Eve Costarelli, Boston Children’s Foundation Guardians of Isadora directed by Dicki Macy Johnson, The School of Classical Ballet, with director Kirsta Sendziak and the students of Carl Alleyne in a Hip Hop demo!

Bring Mom along and treat her and all the family to a program of vibrant dances performed primarily by youth (and a few guest adults!) The program will be concise to allow all to enjoy Mother's Day, but feel free to stay after to talk about the performance and ask the faculty artists about their ongoing classes at The Dance Complex.

The Dance Complex is a unique center for dance where all can come to learn and grow. Youth and Family classes are especially supportive of individuals while encouraging growth through creativity and a thorough movement practice. Our classes for Youth and Families engage minds and bodies in a non-competitive atmosphere, and provide a basis for healthy moving — whether dancing on stage or in the studio, or navigating the “choreography” of daily living as children and families grow.
