Hillary Abigaña, flute; C. Neil Parsons, bass trombone; Greg Jukes, percussion
The Fourth Wall explores a new hybrid of the performing arts in which musicians are also dancers and actors. Stretching the boundaries of instrumental performance, The Fourth Wall commissions new interdisciplinary works and reinterprets established repertoire to make music that leaps off the stage.
The ensemble is comprised of flutist and dancer, Hilary Abigana, bass trombonist and choreographer, C. Neil Parsons and percussionist and narrator, Greg Jukes.
So, what's so great about this group? There's something for everyone in our performances. If you go to concerts to listen to beautiful music, check. If you want to see a live performance to watch the performers' intensity, done. If you want to be enveloped in the experience, we've got it. The "fourth wall" is a theater term pertaining to the imaginary wall at the front of a stage, through which the audience sees the action of a play. However, with our group we "break" that wall by communicating directly with our audience, taking the stage action into their area and making the entire room our playground. We dance, we act, we play music and you are right there with us.
