In celebration of the Bechtler's latest exhibition, Celebrating Jean Tinguely and Santana, five composers have written original music to complement the piece. Three of the pieces include original choreography by UNCC's Associate Dance Professor, Kim Jones, with former dancers from the Martha Graham and Jose Limon Dance company as well as local dancers.
