PAINTING THE ROOM

CURRENT

Painting the Room, initiated by Tera Kilbride in 2018, is a quintet of experienced improvisors who music/dance and text to create gorgeous sound-dance-scapes and conceptual performance. Painting the Room is a collaboration between Thomas C Lang (piano), Isabel Dammann (violin), Nora Anderson (performer), Crissy Tolson (performer), Tera Kilbride (performer). 

Painting The Room grew out of a desire to create more diverse stylings of improvisation.
