In 2011, MADCO partnered with the percussion students of the University of Missouri-St. Louis music department to create an original dance concert they named Pulse
. The percussionists composed original music, for which dancers choreographed new pieces. The collaboration was so successful that both parties decided to do it again -- exactly as before, and yet completely different. Again the percussionists have crafted brand-new musical numbers, and once again the dancers have choreographed new movements. So, MADCO: Pulse II -- The Rhythm Continues
, is just like last time -- only better. Pulse II
is performed at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (January 31 through February 2) at the Touhill Performing Arts Center on the UMSL campus (1 University Boulevard at Natural Bridge Road; 314-516-4949 or www.touhill.org
). Tickets are $15 to $25.
