Nick Cave Performs at the Denver Art Museum (Video)

On June 28, the Denver Art Museum proudly presented a Nick Cave-choreographed performance in Ponti Hall. For this performance, Cave collaborated with local dance companies 3rd Law, Cleo Parker Robinson Dance, and Wonderbound as well as 15 locals he selected in an open call dance audition. Improv band Double Ply Translucent Caterpillar and DJ Man Mantis performed live at the event. 

Also, on July 19, the Denver Art Museum presented Nick Cave’s HEARD as part of Denver’s Biennial of the Americas celebration. For this performance, Cave collaborated with 64 local dancers to bring a herd of whimsical horses to life. Live music accompanied the performance.
