Erika Randall performed with painter/violinist Michiko Theurer on Nov. 7 (Nomad Playhouse, Boulder) and Nov. 8 (Stewart Auditorium, Longmont Museum & Cultural Center, Longmont).
“Recently, [Michiko Theurer] combined her two passions in a pair of well-received performances for the new BBF Education Series. Line/Color/Motion featured Bach and Debussy pieces—performed by Theurer and BBF Education Director and pianist Mina Gajic—choreography and dance by CU-Boulder dance professor Erika Randall and Theurer’s paintings.”

“J.S. Bach (1685-1750) and Claude Debussy (1862-1918) came from very different worlds and yet often shared a similar, dance-like sense of motion in their music. Line/Color/Motion explores their contrasting approaches to creating this sense of motion by comparing it with two different approaches to painting, one based on the development of line, and the other based on the juxtaposition of colors.”
