Laurenzi’s current research on wonder, awe, and the Anthropocene intersect and fuse as the company of artists leads the audience into a sensorial immersive experience. Original compositions by collaborator Allen Russell provide a haunting soundscape and transport the viewer into the underwater world of Biome.

Danceworks Performance MKE presents…

Dixit Dominus with Aperi Animam

May 17-19, 2024
at Calvary Presbyterian Church
935 W. Wisconsin Avenue
Milwaukee, WI 53233

Purchase Tickets


About the show: Joining forces, Danceworks Performance MKE and APERI ANIMAM set out on a rhythmic journey with George Frideric Handel’s passionate rendition of ‘Dixit Dominus.’ Composed by the prodigious 22-year-old Handel in 1707 during his time in Italy, this earlier work presents a flamboyant tapestry of intricate vocal lines woven with a prominent rhythmic gusto. With its dynamic interplay between soloists and choir, ‘Dixit Dominus’ exudes a sense of dramatic fervor that reflects Handel’s profound ability to evoke both grandeur and intimacy while amplifying the sentiments of the war between heaven and hell. In juxtaposition to Handel’s baroque style, this concert features a world premiere by choreographer Maria Gillespie that carefully pairs sophisticated repertoire with her authentically raw movement aesthetic, highlighting secular works in the polyphonic style.

UPAF SmART Card holders can redeem their Buy-One-Get-One-Free ticket (or buy one at half price) for any Danceworks Performance MKE concert offer by calling Danceworks Box Office at 414.277.8480.
