DANCE: Access is a self-produced series administered by Danspace Project.

NEW YORK CITY - Jin Ju Song-Begin is a choreographer, dancer, and dance teacher from Seoul, Korea, whose work has been presented internationally in Korea, Japan, and the U.S. She founded Da-On Dance in 2012. Song strives to create and convey truthful experiences within the performers, through the stage, and into the audience. Her vision is to offer impetus for thought, emotion, and something less definable. This evening marks the premiere of the company's first evening-length work.

Thirst is structured on themes drawn from Dante's Inferno, such as desire, greed, punishment, incessant chase, loss of self, suffering, and the nature of hell. As Song and dancers explore the possibilities offered by these ideas, they create tableaux characterized by thoroughly different structures and movement qualities.

The work features music composed by Jerome Begin and features musician Loren Dempster. The score is written for cello, synthesizer, and various sound-producing objects, all amplified and processed electronically.

Dancers: Esme Boyce, Giulia Carotenuto, Kevin Fay, David Gonsier, Breanna Gribble, Karen Harvey, Kyungjoon Lee, Elliott Reiland, JinJu Song-Begin.
Composer: Jerome Begin
Musicians: Jerome Begin and Loren Dempster
Lighting Designer: Brian Jones

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
