“It is in the dance of life that we collaborate with our individuality to create the beautiful orchestra of community.” – Acia Gray, Director

 

“Who Am I?” is the question for a family of Austin artists and the answers are thread throughout a collaborative concert in the magic of movement and sound.  Featuring some of the most celebrated dance, vocal and music artists Austin has to offer, “The Precious Present” includes spoken word poet Zell Miller III; vocalists Nagavalli and Mohammed Firoozi; modern/contemporary dancers Sharon Marroquin, Jun Shen, Andrea Ariel as well as Austin newcomer Francisco Graciano; Bharatanatyam master Anuradha Naimpally; local Flamenco legend Olivia Chacon; long-time local African dancer China Smith; flow artist Kelly Bach as well as Jeremy Arnold and director Acia Gray bringing Tapestry’s jazz tap dance legacy back to the stage. 

 

Opening with “what it is to be present” as a human soul is an “inner voice” presented by recently retired Austin Chronicle arts writer Robert Faires.  With production design by Stephen Pruitt the audience is led by a soundscape of incredible musicians including the global fusion of ATASH and the best of America’s indigenous jazz from The Souls of Our Feet Trio featuring Masumi Jones, Michael Stevens and Austin Kimble.

 

This new work celebrates a musical and physical collaboration of diverse voices within our Austin arts ecosystem. All unique yet traveling together and not alone - an artistic human tapestry of life that holds itself together as ONE.
