Joan and Cid on KALW
During the fall of 2018 Cid Pearlman Performance celebrated their longstanding collaboration with cellist/composer Joan Jeanrenaud in an evening of four works: Strange Toys, small variations, Your Body is Not a Shark, and the world premiere of Wasps & Ladybugs.
The earliest piece on the program, Strange Toys, had its New York premiere at the Joyce Soho in 2004. Nominated for two Los Angeles Horton Awards, small variations premiered as a 30-minute sextet in 2006 in Los Angeles. Your Body is Not a Shark, an evening-length work created with poet Denise Leto, premiered at ODC Theater in San Francisco in 2013.
The duet from small variations, performed by Julia Daniel and Collette Kollewe, was nominated for a 2018/2019 Isadora Duncan Award for Outstanding Achievement in Performance - Ensemble.
