Fracture at the Ford Amphitheatre

The Ford Amphitheater continued with its wide ranging summer festival of dance on September 16th with FRACTURE, featuring four Los Angeles dance and theater companies along with the music performance ensemble, STRING THEORY. It turned out to be much more than your usual multi-company mixed bill. In.INVERTIGO's WreckTangle is beautifully supported by composer Danny Moynahan's score and a live onstage ensemble of STRING THEORY regulars. They offered clear transitions and a perfect musical environment for WreckTangle to work its peculiar theatrical charm. Especially vivid was an extended tango and Latin groove which was subtle and gave us a musically fractured take on a familiar sound. Special applause goes to STRING THEORY for providing a grinding and shattering sound score that was perfect for telomere. They just may have distinguished themselves as the new go to ensemble for new music for dance in Los Angeles. Their untitled score, which verged on the frightening, was by ensemble founders, Holly and Luke Rothschild.
