Acclaimed composer/violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) returns home to South Florida with an ecstatic fusion of music, art and movement in Symphony for the Dance Floor. Known for bringing audiences to their feet with sonic collages of classical, pop and hip-hop sounds, DBR ushers the concert hall and dance club into the theater with Symphony for the Dance Floor.
Centered around the shrieking, singing, and seduction of DBR’s violin playing, the production is augmented with collaborations including choreography by Millicent Johnnie (former resident choreographer of Urban Bush Women); ebullient live dancing; bombastic laptop/turntable soundscapes; raw, uncompromising photography and video by Jonathan Mannion (best known for his soul bearing portraits of hip-hop icons Jay-Z, Lauryn Hill, Mos Def and Eminem); and emceeing by actor/rapper Lord Jamar (member of hip-hop group Brand Nubian and former star of HBO’s Oz) – all under the direction of D.J. Mendel.
