Sonsherée and Megan presented a new duet with live music from Caroline Penwarden for West Wave Dance Festival's 26th year, focused on a specific genre of music: nocturnes. Originally a nocturne referred to a piece of music played for an evening party, now the familiar form is a single-movement piece inspired by the night. This festival presents the public with several evenings of nocturnes that contrast or comment on our wakeful, busy, and often over-stimulating lives, while bringing to light what is normally covered by darkness. "Nocturnes" was performed at Community Music Center in San Francisco, CA on September 27th and October 8th, 2017.
