Co-directed by Jessie Jeanne Stinnett and Itzik Galili, Boston Dance Theatre (BDT) showcases the talents of Boston-based dancers and presents works by acclaimed choreographers. BDT performs the world premiere of The Carol Kaye Project, which celebrates seminal bassist Carol Kaye’s legacy and consists of dance works by a variety of American women choreographers. Kaye played on an estimated 10,000 recording sessions with everyone from The Beach Boys to Marvin Gaye, yet she remains relatively unknown. In this special first full program of The Carol Kaye Project, BDT will perform two world premieres, one by Karole Armitage and another by Jessie Jeanne Stinnett, along with Ofrenda by Rosie Herrera, and For the Record by Rena Butler.
Dance Magazine recently acknowledged the innovation of the project, adding BDT to its list of Top 25 to Watch in 2021. Chief editor Jennifer Stahl writes, “By consistently making these kinds of savvy curatorial choices—and pulling them off with finesse—BDT’s quickly grown into a company with appeal far beyond Boston’s city limits.”
