“Dance, music and scenic design come together in a dazzling multimedia orchestration… The production is a colossal triumph of the imagination, continually drawing us back to the mystery of Goldsworthy’s dance with nature.” Huffington Post

San Francisco’s acclaimed modern dance group ODC/Dance presents its mesmerizing multimedia performance boulders and bones in Santa Barbara before making its headlining appearance at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Next Wave Festival. “A colossal triumph of the imagination” (The Huffington Post), boulders and bones traces the shifting light, changing landscape and raw natural materials of an Andy Goldsworthy installation and transforms these images into an exploration of the process of creation. Co-choreographed by ODC artistic directors Brenda Way and KT Nelson, the movement is set to a live, driving electro-acoustic score composed by cellist Zoë Keating.
