     From the tundra to the tropics, artists from around the globe will snap, clap, step, and sing artful music you can see and dance you can hear as Berklee and Wellesley College bring body music to Boston for a series of events culminating in this final concert. Artistic Director Keith Terry, pioneer of contemporary body music, offers a deeply visceral, cross-cultural conversation that only the world’s oldest instrument—the body—can reach.

    The Wall Street Journal says the result is “like visiting an anatomical carnival, where hands, feet, fingers, bellies, rumps, and mouths engage in an endless musical ballet.” A question-and-answer session will follow the performance.
