Due to unforeseen circumstances, the performance has been rescheduled to Sunday, October 1 at 5 pm.

The Sound of Space Between Us is a site-specific performance connecting sound and movement through physical space. Conceived and curated by Annie Nikunen (flutist of BlackBox Ensemble, composer, dancer, and choreographer) and Leonard Bopp (Artistic Director of BlackBox Ensemble), the Clark’s grounds are used as a meeting place for music and dance to converse about our public place in the ecosystem and our private paths with(in) it. The musicians are choreographic agents, responding to each other, the dancers, and the audience in real time while stationed around the space, whether working as parts in a predetermined map or improvising as a unit. The performance features work by Annie Nikunen, Meg Stuart, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Dai Fujikura, Morton Feldman, and inti figgis-vizueta, with choreography by Annie Nikunen and Joelle Antonia Santiago.

Nikunen and Bopp maintain strong connections to the regional area. Bopp grew up in Albany and attended Williams College, and both Bopp and Nikunen studied at the Tanglewood Music Center (Lenox, Massachusetts) this past summer—Nikunen as a composition fellow, and Bopp in the Conducting Seminar.
