Raison D’être Dance Project presents Vivaldi + RANGES

Ellen Theatre

Upcoming Dates & Times

Saturday, August 18, 2018 at 1:30pm - 2:30pm

Hailed as “fierce contemporary dance,” Raison D’être Dance Project will bring a dynamic and powerful production to the stage of the Ellen Theatre with the band RANGES and a Baroque ensemble on August 18th. The company combines live music, innovative design, and groundbreaking choreography to create works that express unique ideas and perspectives.


The company will premiere two new works in Bozeman. “Perfection of the Symphonies” is choreographed to music by Antonio Vivaldi, and features soloists Carrie Krause (violin), Sarah Stoneback and Briana Gillet (trumpet), and Else Trygstad-Burke and Peter Landeen (cello). Renowned Baroque bassoonist Ben Matus of New York City will also perform with the ensemble.


“Ranges in Motion” is set to The Ascensionist, the newest album of the post-rock band RANGES. Using the cohesive visual concept of the album, this work blends the epic instrumental sound of the band with athletic choreography and revolutionary costume design.


Performances will take place at 1:30 pm and 5:30 pm on August 18th at the Ellen Theatre. Tickets are available at raisondetredance.org or at the Ellen Theatre Box Office (406-585-5885).
