Art Chowder May | June 2017, Issue 9 - Page 13

Having choreographed over 40 dances and three op- eras, there will tentatively be a concert the first week of May (location TBD at time of press). Greene will perform one of his favorites, Dixit Dominus by Viv- aldi, which comprises eight sections in 20 minutes. With considerable steps and formality, this modern dance set to classical music creates a spiritual journey for those in attendance. He will also present Awak- enings, a new piece set to cello loops previewed at the Company Ballet School in August, 2016. Concert dates and locations can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/vincas.greene 2017 will also bring an interactive art project in col- laboration with SPARK Central (September) and po- tentially a virtual reality venture with film director Juan Mas. Whatever the future of the Danse Matters communi- ty, Master Greeneā€™s story will be a moving and ex- citing one.
