Rashaad Newsome Studio is seeking New Orleans musicians for Mélange, a multimedia performance piece to be presented at the CAC on January 20, 2017. Accompanied by a makeshift orchestra, including trumpet, trombone, clarinet, saxophone, sousaphone and percussion, five dancers perform five individual choreographed dance sequences.
 
Each instrument used in the performance correlates to a given dancer. Performances by the musicians are largely improvisational and respond in large part musically to what the dancers are doing physically, building into a beautifully structured crescendo of sound and movement as each dancer enters the floor, one by one.
