Department of Music chair Jarosław Kapuściński premieres new work in San Francisco

Jun 15 2022

Choreographer Jung YoungDoo and pianist and composer Jarosław Kapuściński (Department of Music chair and faculty) will perform the world premiere of their new collaboration, with, at ODC Dance in San Francisco on July 16 and 17. The work is a continuous one-hour “conversation” between musician and dancer as they create a counterpoint between motion and stasis, each asking the other to react in real-time and attempting to establish a profound — almost meditative — connection with each other and the audience.

with was created collaboratively by longtime friends Kapuściński and Jung when they began to exchange music and video clips between San Francisco and Seoul at the start of the pandemic in 2020. Kapuściński usually performs his music with computer-controlled video projections while also introducing liveness, spontaneity of performance, and subtlety in ephemeral timings. Working so closely together with a dancer on stage takes this kind of creative undertaking to a higher level.
