  • AGES Not available
  • COST $8 - $25

Local dance company LITVAKdance is streaming a performance of duets set to a broad range of compositions for strings — contemporary original works, Bach, Klezmer, improvisational jazz and more — and new choreography created for the pieces.

The dances hail from guest choreographers Rebecca Margolick and Maile Okamura, as well as company dancers. Musicians include Pete Polansky, Colin Jacobsen, Sean Walsh, Kate Hatmaker, Yale Strom, Kristopher Apple, Joshua White and Meredith Yayanos. The performances, seven in total, were filmed on stage at the La Jolla Music Society's Baker Baum Concert Hall or the La Jolla Historical Society Wisteria Cottage. Expect plenty of elegance and intrigue in these limited-spot virtual screenings.

The 7 p.m. screening is nearly sold out, but LITVAKdance just added a second showing at 8 p.m. -- Julia Dixon Evans, KPBS

LITVAKdance presents solos and duets by guest choreographers Maile Okamura and Rebecca Margolick & company dancers alongside 7 solo musicians. The music is a diverse array of sounds from Bach to contemporary classical compositions, Irish fiddle, Klezmer and Improvisational Jazz piano. Works were filmed at La Jolla Music Society’s Baker Baum Concert Hall and La Jolla Historical Society’s Wisteria House.
