In my “upcoming” post a few days ago I neglected to mention Simple Measures’s performances at Spectrum Dance Theater and the Fremont Abbey. Simple Measures has built a reputation in Seattle for progressive concert programming that is accessible. It is a mission that founder Rajan Krishnaswami and all of the musicians associated with the group take very seriously. Their 2009-2010 season continues in this tradition with a classic Simple Measures event simply called “Earth.”
Earth, showcases the talents of both the Simple Measures musicians and the dancers from Seattle Dance Project by combining modern dance with classical music and pop music arrangements. This season opening event will run longer than a normal show. There will be three performances at the Spectrum Dance Theater next weekend, followed by three more at the Fremont Abbey.
