Earth Tomes is a collaborative project featuring Roots in the Sky, Montana’s premier chamber choir, and James Sewell Ballet celebrating its 31st anniversary this year. Earth Tomes explores a series of juxtapositions: ballet/choir, historical/contemporary music, urban/rural settings, and sacred/secular perspectives on death and grief. The singers and dancers will take the stage at the same time for a collaborative performance of ballet and choir. The piece is structured around J.S. Bach’s funeral motet Jesu, meine Freude, and asks questions about the ways in which we view ourselves in relation to others through a counterpoint of music and movement. FRI-SAT, 7 PM. $30-35.
