In this piece, I’m showcasing the female artists participating in Together; nine out of 39, which is a good percentage for the male-dominated field of electronic music. They run the gamut of electronic music styles and are from local and national locations ranging from Boston to Hawaii.

Take a listen and check the Together schedule to see if you can still catch them this week.

On Tuesdays, Nadya Okamoto has two classes, Human Colloquium and Beginners Spanish II. By 2 o’clock,  she’s done with courses and yet, on a recent Tuesday afternoon, Okamoto found herself without free time to relax in her dorm or throw a frisbee on the campus lawn. She had six scheduled meetings, two discussion panels, and dance practice squeezed onto the day’s agenda on her phone.

Subject:Matter

An Interview with Choreographer/Director Ian Berg

It was one of those nights. I didn’t want to leave the house. The snarled, rude, rush hour traffic, coupled with a lack of parking in Central Square, confirmed my mood. I was asked to film a tap dance performance at the Dance Complex, and the thought of banging metal shoes on a wood floor was not conducive to my bad mood. I was braced for agony.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.
