3S Artspace is proud to present 2 performances of Boston Dance Theater's The Carol Kaye Project, BDT's newest program that celebrates seminal bassist, Carol Kaye, on October 28th and 29th.

"Since the early 1960s, Carol Kaye recorded an estimated 10,000 sessions, with everyone from The Beach Boys to Marvin Gaye. Yet, she remains relatively unknown. Boston Dance Theater chose choreographers Karole Armitage, Rena Butler, and Rosie Herrera to honor Kaye’s extensive musical repertoire. I’m humbled to contribute a fourth work to this program, set to a commissioned music score featuring the electric bass by my brother and collaborator, Grant Stinnett. As a diverse cohort of powerhouse, American, women choreographers, our works embody Kaye’s genius through sweaty, whimsical, and thoughtful choreography." —Jessie Jeanne Stinnett, Boston Dance Theater Founder & Co-Director


“This is a beautiful honor by this fantastic dance troupe in Boston!” —Carol Kaye

“With its expert dancers and an evolving repertory of works by important choreographers, Boston Dance Theatre has found a way to maintain its sparkle further into the 21st century.” —WBUR
