Body Music in Boston

UPDATE

Hi all, our event is coming right up! 

Tickets are general admission, and the doors to the theater will open around 7:50. I plan to show up at the Performance Center around 7:30 to get a good spot in line at the door, but the rest of you are welcome to arrive a bit later if you wish.  My picture is on my profile so hopefully you will recognize me.  Also, I will privately email you with my cell phone number so you can contact me if you have trouble finding me or are running late.

Looking forward to this!

 

 

About This Event

From the tundra to the tropics, artists from around the globe will snap, clap, step, and sing artful music you can see and dance you can hear as Berklee and Wellesley College bring body music to Boston for a series of events culminating in this final concert. Artistic Director Keith Terry, pioneer of contemporary body music, offers a deeply visceral, cross-cultural conversation that only the world’s oldest instrument—the body—can reach.

The Wall Street Journal says the result is “like visiting an anatomical carnival, where hands, feet, fingers, bellies, rumps, and mouths engage in an endless musical ballet.” A question-and-answer session will follow the performance. For a complete list of Body Music in Boston events, visit: http://www.wellesley.edu/music/concertseries/body_music.

Tickets are $8 in advance (plus $3-$5 in online and delivery fees) or $12 day of show, and can be purchased here:

      You're welcome - it was fun! Check out Raul's singing (Canary Island guys) in this youtube video, sounds like a lullabye but not sure it is. Wish I could get some audio recordings of his voice-sung songs, but I didn't find any. http://www.youtube.co...­

      Very cool, definitely has to do with the human condition the devastated or forloned man is powerful. Perhaps lullabye. Thanks!
