Ping Pong Balls Dance Choreography

Choreographer Jonah Bokaer and Snarkitecture combine talents to create Why Patterns, a dance inspired from the musical composition by Morton Feldman of the same name. It starts off with a black stage and a singular ping-pong ball. Soon it transforms into a beautiful dance with hundreds of them.

The show runs from August 3 to August 7, 2011 at the Jacob Pillow Dance Festival in Becket, Massachusetts. Intriguing!
