“Uprooted” – Red Shoe Company Chamber Ensemble
Teagan Faran, director
Friday, November 30, 2018
7:00 p.m. in our Downtown Sanctuary
The Red Shoe Company is an all-arts collective dedicated to community happiness. One of Ann Arbor’s defining community features is our nature. According to Red Shoe members, “In this increasingly developing world, we must keep an eye towards the culture that preserves the green spaces in our town”. This evening’s performance is full of works inspired by the flora and fauna which surround us. The musical centerpiece of this concert is a work by composer-performer, songwriter, and visual artist Tanner Porter from Califormia. Porter’s love for cross-mingling of art forms often incorporates a wealth of her creative expressions in poetry, animations, artwork, and story-telling interwoven within her musical compositions. Porter’s Quartet “Six Sides from the Shape of Us” is here presented with staging by the composer. Join us during the day as well, for an interactive workshop in conjunction with the Ann Arbor Nichols Arboretum!
