Tripsichore is pleased to announce that the company will perform at the NOYES ARTS GARAGE (2200 Fairmont Ave. in Atlantic City) on June 6 at 8:00 pm. The show is called FUELLED BY BREATH and features new work as well as some of their most memorable works from the past.
For the last 20 years, Tripsichore has carved out a unique reputation in the yoga world. The company has performed round the globe and are renowned for their technical mastery, wit, and philosophically intrepid stance on yoga. Their aim is to engage their audiences with highly choreographed and entertaining performances that explore a vast range of yogic experiences. Artistic Director Edward Clark says, "While we are always pleased to have people who do yoga at our shows, we are truly delighted when these people bring along their somewhat reluctant friends or significant others. They are so often the people who are surprised and thrilled to find that yoga can be a sublime experience. We hope FUELLED BY BREATH leaves everyone gasping."
The performance will feature the fantastic NIKKI DURRANT who will bring her singular grace to new and old favourites from the last 10 years of Tripsichore repertoire as well as EDWARD CLARK.
Tripsichore is particularly pleased to be showcasing new works that have been composed by world renowned pedal steel guitar player BJ COLE and writing partner MARK VERNON. Whether co-writing with the Orb or re-interpreting Roy Orbison with Brian Eno, BJ COLE continues to prove himself the most essential and pioneering Pedal Steel Guitarist in the UK today. His uniquely eclectic style of Pedal Steel Guitar playing first made an impact on the British music scene in the early 1970's with his performances on Elton John's classic 'Tiny Dancer' and Joan Armatrading's hit single 'Down To Zero'. Throughout the '70's and into the '80's, BJ's inimitable contributions to classic recordings by Marc Bolan, Scott Walker, The Stranglers, kd lang, Deacon Blue and Paul Young earned him considerable respect as both an innovative and exciting creative force. The success of this pioneering approach has been born out through sessions and live performances with artists as diverse as David Sylvian, Depeche Mode, Beck, Bjork, Sting, John Cale and most recently, Martin Simpson and Tom Jones.
