Vocal ensemble Variant 6 and New Chamber Ballet join forces for the world premiere of Munu Munu, a ballet with a cappella voices. Munu Munu combines the rhythmic, ritualistic music of Toby Twining and a selection of medieval music from as far back as the 1300’s. Variant 6 and New Chamber Ballet seek to connect these disparate eras through rarely heard performances of this music, and brand-new choreography.
Artistic Director and Choreographer Miro Magloire returns to Philadelphia with his signature classical-modern aesthetic, pairing the movement of his dancers with the energy of Variant 6’s singing. Munu Munu will transform the Performance Garage as the dancers perform in the round, with singers and audience on all sides of the stage.
