Choreography: Ashley Salter Dancers: Katie Scherman and Peter Rice Music: "Electric Counterpoint 1 : Fast"…by Pat Metheny; Composed by Steve Reich Lighting Design: Ashley Salter Costume Design: Ashley Salter “Somewhere in Between” is a minimalist duet, performed to Steve Reich’s Electric Counterpoint 1.
