The collaborative effort is appropriately titled Synergy, Dallas Music in Motion. Choreographer Joshua L. Peugh returns to Dallas to present a piece that reunites him with someone who is not only a Dallas-based musician but also a friend.
Synergy will feature new works by founder Diana Crowder, Daniel Ojeda and Peugh alongside the music of DJ and alternative electronic composer Elkin Pautt, singer-songwriter Dev Wulf and the jazz fusion band The Kwinton Gray Project.
Joshua L. Peugh “Synergy, Dallas Music in Motion is a meaningful and important project for Pegasus Contemporary Ballet because it perfectly embodies who we are as a company — innovative and vibrant,” Crowder, the artistic director and founder of Pegasus Contemporary Ballet, said in a press release. “Through this performance, we’re collaborating with artists of other disciplines to create a work of art that is truly unique and captures the spirit of the entire Dallas arts community.
