Jazz composer and gifted trumpeter Mark Rapp teams up with professional choreographer Stephanie Wilkins to present Woven, a one of a kind tapestry of jazz and contemporary dance. Developed exclusively as part of The HT@MTC Performance Incubator, Woven melds choreography with improvisation, taking the audience on a life voyage through universal human experiences, from passion to despair; questioning to acceptance. During their professional careers in NYC, Rapp and Wilkins worked in the uppermost echelons of the performing arts. In Woven, their collective experiences are conveyed through an evening-length set of works featuring five jazz musicians and six contemporary dancers, portraying, through notes and steps, how we are all connected – woven – together in this fabric of life.See Woven’s Website
“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together. All things connect.”
