Featuring artists from Bali, Brazil, Canary Islands (Spain) and the U.S., people snap, clap, step and sing artful music. BODY MUSIC ignites audiences with music you can SEE, dance you can HEAR. It's the oldest music on the planet, and it's brand new. Artistic Director Keith Terry, pioneer of contemporary Body Music, brings you a deeply visceral, cross-cultural conversation that only the world's oldest instrument, the body, can reach."Mr. Terry and his colleagues in action is like visiting an Anatomical Carnival, where hands, feet, fingers, bellies, rumps and mouths engage in an endless musical ballet." Wall Street Journal. "The risers shook as the crowd stomped euphoric approval." San Francisco Chronicle.
