One plus One Quartet: Powell, Hruby, Sasaki, Noble

Friday, March 18, 1983. 8:00 pm

Comprised of dancers Patricia Hruby and Debra Noble and musicians Morgan Powell (trombone) and Ray Sasaki (trumpet), began as a completely improvisatory group. The dancers employed contact improvisation, used ropes rigged from the ceiling, and handles sewn to their costumes to augment the form. The musicians also moved/danced, and the quartet eventually did choreographed works such as Dickel Seven (choreo: Hruby 1988) and commissioned a piece from the great choreographer Beverly Blossom. ONE PLUS ONE…Quartet performed in Champaign, Cleveland, New York City, Paris, Vernon, Cologne, Florence, and Rome, among other places.
