The ICA proudly presents the Boston premiere of the 2007 Bessie-award winning Chapel/Chapter by one of the most powerful forces in contemporary dance. The work explores the uneasy distance created by the disturbing, sometimes incomprehensible news items of our media-saturated era. Chapel/Chapter creates an intimate experience between the audience and the Company as it retells three stories: two high visibility news items and one reminiscence/confession offered by a company member. The original musical score by Haitian-American composer Daniel Bernard Roumain combines and juxtaposes madrigals, folk songs, and plainsong chant. Together with video and dramatic set design, the evening-length work creates a self-enclosed world and a language made up of song, music, and words in dialogue with a rigorous, joyful movement vocabulary. Tickets: $50 reserved seating; $40 members, students, and seniors.
