The Maritime Conservatory of Performing Arts Presents:

TAPESTRY

January 14, 2024, 2:00pm. The Lilian Piercey Concert Hall, Halifax, N.S.

MCPA faculty members Daniel MacNeil (music) and Meredith Kalaman (dance) collaborate, using their creative energies for the premiere of an original work for music and dance. MacNeil combines acoustic instruments, electronics and musical elements from all around the world for the creation of a real-time soundscape which is interactive with the reflective looping movements of Kalaman exploring the expansion of time in relation to MacNeil’s original sound score. Together, they weave a rich and textured journey through sound and sight.
