Bête Perdue, is an new, original work which muses on the capacity for belief and disenchantment in the common world. Drawn from written history and individual vision, Bete Perdue is created collaboratively by choreographer Mary Oslund and master drummer and composer Obo Addy, whose work has been commissioned work by the Kronos Quartet and Third Angle Music, and is an NEA Heritage Artist. The score by Addy will meld African and Western modes and instrumentation, tradition and invention, and theme and craft at a cultural intersection. Addy and Oslund will explore a rough common language, employing a dj engineer as translator.
