Integrating live music and vocal work into dance, Heaven is a collaboration between rising choreographer Morgan Thorson and musicians Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker of the indie band Low. Heaven considers each of its participants equally in solo, duet and choral arrangements to evoke an emotional and physical ecstasy more commonly associated with religious practice. Thorson visits Seattle after enjoying national acclaim for her last project, Faker, which was seen by audiences at PS 122 (NYC), ICA (Boston) and the Walker Art Center’s Momentum Series at The Southern Theater (Minneapolis). Formed in 1993, Low has garnered a worldwide cult following for their minimalist soundscapes and achingly beautiful harmonies.
