Diverse traditions collaborate with stunning artistry and deep respect when GRAMMY® nominees and international touring artists meet in a new ensemble. Each voice is memorable. Together they soar.
The Dovetail Ensemble is a flexible company of stellar performers. Each concert is fresh and surprising, inviting audiences into the process of collaboration as well as its thrilling results. A Dovetail Ensemble performance is playful, deep, intricate, and straight to the heart.
The Dovetail Ensemble arose from the Old Doors/New Worlds project, which from 2009-2012 brought together musicians and dancers from different traditions, generations, and parts of the country to create new music.The project was unique among collaborations in its focus on process as well as product: How do we make what we make? What do we learn about our own art, and about communication, when we collaborate? What do traditional arts mean to us in a world of instant information?
