Music & dance collide: rogue collective
rogue values collaboration, original composition, improvisation and performance. These four elements feature prominently in Glade's work.
Musicians Kaitlin Moreno, Alexa Cantalupo, Troy Pyror, and Erin Snedecor believe in the power of collaboration and unconventional programming to help to bring the sounds, expressions and timbres of classical music to more audiences.
rogue has lots of experience working with dancers and movers. They explained to us how it is different than collaborating with other musicians.
"The nature of how dance is made and shared is so different than music. We rarely encounter music performers who also create (compose) their own works, but in any dance education creation is part of the deal," Kaitlin said.
"As a result of this different training, dancers rehearse in a much different way than musicians. rogue collective loves collaborating with dancers because then we get to create too! In the end we all just get to be artists together, with no boundaries in our way."
Glade is excited to see rogue perform at this Tuesday, April 12 at the Black Squirrel in Adams Morgan! Join us!
