About The Event
As part of MAD (Movement and Dance) Weekend at Nazareth University, Boston Dance Theater provides a glimpse into The Carol Kaye Project, a collection of fun, short dance works that celebrate seminal bass guitarist Carol Kaye.
Since the early 1960s Kaye played on an estimated 10,000 recording sessions, with everyone from The Beach Boys to Marvin Gaye, yet she remains relatively unknown. Boston Dance Theater chose choreographers Karole Armitage, Rena Butler, Rosie Herrera, and Jessie Jeanne Stinnett to honor Kaye’s extensive musical repertoire. This diverse cohort of powerhouse American women embody Kaye’s genius through sweaty, whimsical, and thoughtful choreography. The show includes exclusive interviews from prominent electric bassists, highlighting the breadth of Carol’s influence on an entire generation of musicians and music lovers.
Under the co-artistic direction of Jessie Jeanne Stinnett and award winning, Dutch-Israeli, choreographer Itzik Galili, Boston Dance Theater (BDT) is Boston’s first contemporary dance repertory company with international ties at the leadership level. With a commitment to presenting works of socio-political relevance, BDT matches the talents of Boston-based dancers with those of acclaimed global choreographers, broadening the scope of contemporary dance practice and performance in our city. BDT is a registered 501(c)3 tax-exempt charity as of 2019.
Tickets: $10 general, $5 students | Cash only at the door
