Music for Dance
In Collaboration with Marina Salgado & Bruna Petito
Christel’s music is featured in the Brazlian/Alaskan dance production that toured in São Paulo and other places in Brazil between 2013-2015. In Frágil (Des)Conforto, dance duo Marina Salgado and Bruna Petito explore human uncertainties, frailties and opportunities.
Veraart’s music is at times melodic and soothing, at others percussive and moody – a perfect fabric for dance expression. In the words of choreographers Salgado and Petito, Veraart “captured the intensity” and “found the sound textures needed” to create this impressive dance work of fragile beauty.
Music featured in the dance production was later released on Christel’s album Polar Suite. Inspired by the stark beauty of Alaska, Polar Suite was funded by the prestigious Rasmuson Foundation who described it as “incredibly evocative & well-suited for film and dance.”
