Originally premiered in 2009 to launch the CD of the same name, ‘Rheō’ is a performance project mixing live music and contemporary dance. Percussionist Patrick Graham is accompanied by the electro-acoustic hurdy gurdy of Ben Grossman (Guelph), the Japanese and western flutes of Kaoru Watanabe (New York), and dancer/ choreographer Tomomi Morimoto (Montréal). ‘Rheō’- from the Greek root of ‘rhythm’, also meaning ‘to flow’- features a seamless blending of original cross-cultural compositions and adventurous improvisation with a focus on pulse and sound.
