Photay is the solo musical endeavor of Evan Shornstein. His compositional sophistication is apparent, with tempos and moods spontaneously emerging and evolving organically. Mixed melodies with unusual textures, his music is vibrant and beautifully unexpected.
‘Monday is a song, or a coping mechanism, for mundane morning routines, just a few melodies to help you through the ups and downs of daybreak’ Photay explains.
With that pensive mindset, director Ivan Cash worked in collaboration with Brooklyn-based dancer Ashley Roby and Oakland-based dance crew TURFinc to break the Monday minutia with a free-formed public dance experience.
