Music and dance strike a balance between perpetual motion and perpetual stasis.
Bang Stop

RISING's Artist in Residence, Jim White and long-term collaborator and guitarist Emmett Kelly (aka The Double) are joined by brand-new collaborator Jo Lloyd, to create a physically and musically intense catharsis to open RISING.

Jim White and Emmett Kelly bring the background of countless uninvented rock and roll songs, right to the front.

Traversing the space is choreographer Jo Lloyd and her dancers—their intricate patterns loop and persist, working against and with the sound.

In this takeover of a traditionally silent and reverent space—music and dance strike a balance between perpetual stasis and perpetual motion.

As RISING's Artist in Residence, Jim White collaborates across the program. Be sure to check out his shows with Australian icon Ed Kuepper; guitarist Marisa Anderson; and as Xylouris White, with Cretan laouto player and singer Giorgos Xylouris.
