DiMuro finds creative power in faded memories

After two decades, veteran choreographer Peter DiMuro is back in town to create a new work for the Boston Conservatory’s upcoming performance project, “Reflections: Love, Loss and Living.” The project unites the school’s dance, music, and theater divisions to explore how community helps us through loss and grief, and DiMuro, a leading figure in the field of community-based arts, is an ideal choice for creating a project centerpiece. He was a highly respected, engaging figure on the Boston dance scene until 1993, when he became producing artistic director for Liz Lerman Dance Exchange, performing in and heading up some of the company’s big national projects and becoming a 2000 White House Millennial Artist.

For the past five years, he has focused on freelancing and teaching (currently at Philadelphia’s Drexel University). DiMuro’s world premiere commission, “Archives & Etchings,” is inspired by interviews with nine Alzheimer’s disease caregivers and combines movement, music (Cage, Ravel, Nate Tucker), visual arts, and videotaped interview excerpts.
