An evening of original solo piano and modern dance, premiering new music from Patton’s new solo piano album, Solitaire, followed by a new presentation of their collaborative work for piano and dancers, entitled “Between Shadow and Light”.
Don’t miss this once in a lifetime melding of art, sound and motion. Award-winning pianist and composer, Neil Patton, is teaming up with Dance Veritas for their new performance of Between Shadow and Light. The audience will be treated to a blend of beautifully played live piano by Neil and dynamically danced choreography inspired by the reality of finding hope in times of darkness. As an extra treat, the evening will begin intimately with Neil and his unique style of music and storytelling, premiering new music from his soon-to-be-released solo piano album, Solitaire.
Neil Patton’s music for solo piano is a rare fusion of Classical, New Age, Folk and Rock influences that has emotionally impacted listeners around the globe. His 2015 album, “Between Shadow and Light” was awarded Album of the Year at MainlyPiano.com and has been nominated for other awards, as well. Reviewer Kathy Parsons stated: “There are a lot of really good pianists on the contemporary piano scene, but only a few are breath-taking, and Neil Patton is one of those.”
Dance Veritas is a brand new company to emerge from the Eugene/Springfield community. Their mission is to explore and speak truth through their creative efforts. All of the choreography for this evening’s performance was collectively created by the company members and the director.
