A program divided in two, HIGHKICKdrumstick features stb x at's most recent
work in a low-tech concert... (with wine!)

Part one features a mix of pieces Sean Thomas Boyt and Dr. Andy Thierauf
have developed this past year and performed ACROSS AMERICA: Seattle,
Minneapolis, Philadelphia, and New York City! These duets feature elements
including acoustic tambourine courtship (Let's Dancing!), original music
commissions (_grind), cow poses (Midwest Piece), pseudo avant garde tap
dancing (Halfime Dance), and live video projections (Trio).

Part two is the premiere of Blanc & Bonk: a ballet/revue/concert/celebration
of plagerism we've been collecting and performing for the past fifteen
months. Featuring socially and historically important compositions and
choreography, the curated medley chronicles dance-and-music collaborations
through the ages... shown slightly off-kilter. Extracting moments from
classical ballets to modern-day music videos, stb x at has reduced entire
orchestrations to a solo vibraphone and transposed prima ballerina gestures
onto a dragged-up try-hard.
