On December 6, we were excited to hold the World Premiere of “Axis Minuet”, a dance and percussion work collaboratively created by participants and guest artists Adam Campbell (percussionist) and Kevin Ormsby (dancer).

Over a series of eight workshops, participants and Adam and Kevin explored the interconnectedness of percussion, rhythm and movement. They collaboratively created Axis Minuet, which is based on the melodies and rhythms of J.S. Bach’s “Minuet in G”. The work includes four sections:

(i) Minuet in G performed by participants

(ii) A “soundscape” created by rhythmic and melodic motifs from Minuet in G

(iii) A percussion section

(iv) An arrangement of the Minuet in G theme

A sincere thank you to Adam and Kevin for collaborating with us on this exciting project, and to Kevin Fallis (sound engineer) and Heather Rappard (videographer) for helping us to create this video!
