For this week’s Trailer Tuesday, we present a preview of Burnt Sugar/DANZ. Drawing on the cream of New York music, choreographic and dance-performance talent to create innovative, never-before-seen works, live and in real time, they create an alchemical blend of spontaneously composed music and choreography. Burnt Sugar / Danz: Conduction #6 The Trojan Rumba Suite features The Trojan Rumbas, The Fata Morgana Suite, and the world premiere of R Glitch—a new piece inspired by the intersection of gospel and contemporary dance in collaboration with Don Byron New Gospel Quintet—with an expanded group that also features vocalist Dean Bowman, guitarist Brandon Ross, drummer J.T. Lewis and turntablist DJ Logic.
