Mesh is a study of vulnerability and connection. In this collaborative work, musicians and dancers explore different ways an individual is understood, lost, reimagined, erased, and reformed through the eyes and ears of others. Created through the ICElab commissioning program, Mesh focuses on touch, movement, and sound—fundamental aspects of shared experience.
The International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) is dedicated to reshaping the way music is created and experienced. The award-winning ensemble is in residence at the Mostly Mozart Festival of Lincoln Center through 2013. Mesh marks their third consecutive year at the MTA Festival. Lisa Coons is a composer and sound artist with a special affinity for noise composition, collaboration, and experimentation. She is a 2013 ICElab composer. Founded by Zack Winokur and Michelle Mola in 2009, The Troupe is dedicated to exploring the possibilities of choreography across disciplines.
“For the International Contemporary Ensemble…presenting brash sounds and fresh discoveries is all in a day’s work, though stellar musicianship and infectious enthusiasm prevent any whiff of routine from tainting its labors.”
