With Care is a visceral and moving work for two dancers (Bobbi Jene Smith and Or Schraiber, two former stars of the Batsheva Dance Company) and two violinists (Keir GoGwilt and Miranda Cuckson). The hour-long work explores the dynamics of caregiving, carelessness and loss through a theatrical fusion of dance and music. “With Care” builds on Smith’s previous collaboration with GoGwilt, “A Study on Effort,” the duet version of which premiered at the Luminato Festival in 2016. The piece also includes original music by composer and MacArthur Fellow 2018 Matthew Aucoin, a fast rising star in the music world with strong ties to San Diego. He collaborated with the San Diego Symphony and Art of Elan in January 2019 as part of their “Hearing the Future” festival and worked with the students of the Art of Elan’s Young Artists in Harmony on their musical compositions to present a performance multidisciplinary of all new music. . Founded by Artistic Directors Zack Winokur and Matthew Aucoin, the American Modern Opera Company is a multidisciplinary collective of some of the most adventurous singers, dancers, and instrumentalists working in contemporary and classical music and dance today. .
