Description: <p>With Care is a visceral, moving work for two dancers (Bobbi Jene Smith and Or Schraiber, both former stars of the Batsheva Dance Company) and two violinists (Keir GoGwilt and Miranda Cuckson). The one-hour long work investigates the dynamics of caregiving, carelessness, and loss through a theatrical fusion of dance and music. &ldquo;With Care&rdquo; builds on Smith&rsquo;s previous collaboration with GoGwilt, &ldquo;A Study on Effort,&rdquo; the duet version of which was premiered at the Luminato Festival in 2016. The piece additionally includes original music by composer and 2018 MacArthur Fellow 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 &ldquo;Hearing the Future&rdquo; festival and worked with Art of Elan&rsquo;s Young Artists in Harmony students on their musical compositions to present a multi-disciplinary performance of all new music. Founded by Artistic Directors Zack Winokur and Matthew Aucoin, American Modern Opera Company is a multidisciplinary collective of some of the most adventurous singers, dancers, and instrumentalists at work today in the fields of contemporary and classical music and dance.</p>
