Cantata Profana: Ancient Groove Music


  • HERE Arts 145 6th Avenue New York, NY 10013 (map)

Cantata Profana ends its season with three performances of a rollicking good show at the amazing HERE Arts Center in SoHo. Ancient Groove Music is CP's take on the evolution of dance and groove and beat from the dark ages to the age of minimalism. The show features more than a dozen works from medieval tunes to modern trances, woven into an elaborate narrative. Works by Steve Reich, Henryk Górecki, David Lang, John Adams, and Robert Honstein, with Schubert, Biber, Bartok, and Machaut.
