four/four presents, a recently founded platform for dance and music performances in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, announces the lineup for the October TETHERED event.
Founded by choreographer Loni Landon and music presenter Rachael Pazdan, four/four came together this past spring to provide opportunities for dancers and musicians to collaborate and create work virtually while they are unable to perform live and tour. The initiative was also created as a way to build community and bridge the gap between dance and music audiences.
This fall, four/four will continue to present its video series TETHERED in association with Public Records, the multifacetd music driven social space in Brooklyn. Curated by Landon and Pazdan, TETHERED brings together musicians and dancers from all over the world to collaborate on dance films for Public Records’ broadcast channel PRTV, which the brand created as a means to explore life and creativity during Covid-19. The free one-hour programs also include archived dance works from choreographers. Upcoming TETHERED episodes will be presented on the third Wednesday of each month (October 21, November 18, and December 16) on publicrecords.tv, looping on the hour from 6–10pm ET. These digital premieres will coincide with a dinner screening of the show in the Garden at Public Records (RSVP on Resy to reserve a table to attend).
The lineup for TETHERED IX, premiering on October 21, will feature jazz/hip-hop musician Kassa Overall and dancers Derion Loman (Pilobolus, Diavolo) & Madison Olandt (Jacob Jonas, Diavolo), and multidisciplinary duo slowdanger. The archive section, curated by Alexandra Wells, Artistic Director of Springboard Danse Montreal, will feature works by choreographers Sidra Bell, Rena Butler, Jasmine Ellis, and dance collective La Tresse.
