Choreographer Ani Taj Niemann draws on rhythmic influences from her recent research trip to Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. Points of departure include body rhythms like breathing or a heartbeat, to rhythms in speech and gesture, to the crucial place of rhythm in music itself from the baterias of Carnaval to the 808 in your favorite house and hip hop beats.
