The world premiere of “Differential Cohomology,” performed by the Barkin/Selissen Project and accompanied by the Sirius String Quartet, will be performed at the Staller Center on Monday, January 10, at 8:00 pm. This free event is sponsored by the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics as part of its ongoing commitment to connecting artists and scientists.
“Differential Cohomology,” a new dance work inspired by the mathematical theory of the same name, was created by Kyla Barkin and Aaron Selissen. The mission of their dance company is to forge new pathways in the arts by creating explorative, thought-provoking, and emotionally driven work. The Sirius String Quartet is known for blending the precision of classical music with the energy of a rock band.
World-renowned jazz trombonist Ray Anderson also will be performing during the program. Anderson is director of Jazz Studies at Stony Brook and was named best trombonist in the DownBeat Critics Poll for five straight years.
