Palaver Strings, a string ensemble and nonprofit, will present You Can Dance If You Want To, a collaborative performance celebrating the relationship between live music and dance. The program will include a set of traditional dance tunes from Hungary and Romania and Enescu’s String Octet with original choreography by Cambridge-based dancer Chavi Bansal and members of her company, Vimoksha. Following intermission, the audience will be invited to participate in a New England contra dance, guided by a dance caller with live music from Palaver Strings.

“As classical musicians, we encounter dance forms every day. We rarely stop to think about these gavottes and allemandes as more than markings on the page, but they are important links to a time when dance and music were equal partners.”

PROGRAM
ENESCU Octet for Strings in C major, Op. 7
TRADITIONAL Transylvanian dance set
TRADITIONAL New England contra tunes
