About

The Kennedy Center's DIRECT CURRENT celebration kicks off with Bon Iver & TU Dance’s Come Through, a cohesive, cross-genre performance between two artistic powerhouses. This evening-length collaboration features new music from Justin Vernon, of two-time Grammy Award®–winning indie folk band Bon Iver, and new choreography from TU Dance, a diverse nine-member company founded by Toni Pierce-Sands and Uri Sands and known for works that combine the language of modern dance and classical ballet with African-based and urban vernacular movements. Come Through was commissioned by the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra’s Liquid Music Series, in which it premiered this past April, prompting the Star Tribune to marvel: “As the two art forms connect to each other, they become an exponentially more powerful force.”
