The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library
1008 Wall St., La Jolla, CA
San Diego New Music and the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library present Labyrinth, a music and dance performance co-created by Kristopher and Dina Apple. Labyrinths have been used throughout history as devices for meditation, metaphors for storytelling, and as a bridge between the physical and metaphysical. Taking inspiration from these mythologies and practices, a cross-disciplinary ensemble weaves sound, movement, and text into a contemplative listening experience—a listening labyrinth. You are invited to the listening labyrinth—to follow the thread of now, gather your senses at each passing moment, and reflect on the potential for transformation.
Kristopher and Dina are music and dance makers from San Diego, California, whose work explores cross-disciplinary ensemble practices and performance-making that is often improvised and interactive. Kristopher is a violinist and composer working at the intersection of music, dance, text, and digital media. He teaches digital audio at the University of San Diego, accompanies dance classes at UC San Diego, MiraCosta College, and Palomar College, and has recently been a featured composer and performer with LITVAKdance, IMAGOmoves, and San Diego Dance Theater. Dina is a dance maker whose work investigates cross-disciplinary collaboration, practices of social choreography, and dance as a responsive and investigative act. She holds an MFA from UC San Diego and a BFA from San Diego State University and attended the Ricean School of Dance.
