3-Minute:- Zenon at the Southern

Zenon at the Southern

This 3-minute egg is about Wynn Fricke, a choreographer, Peter O'Gorman, a percussionist and Cynthia Gutierrez-Garner, also a choreographer who merges salsa dance with Jazz music. Wynn collaborated with Peter in creating this piece which premiered at the Zenon Dance Company's Fall production. In this piece, they talked about how in some cases, Peter created the sounds to match the choreography and in other cases, the choreography was created to match the sound when the sound was strong enough. In watching this piece, we can see the collaboration has worked very well and most of the performances go well with the unique sounds that Peter created.

Cynthia Gutierrez-Garner also showed some of her modern dance performances which is a blend of salsa and jazz dance.
