WALDOBORO — A concert entitled "Love Lies Bleeding" on Friday, Sept. 13, at 6 p.m. at St. Paul’s Chapel, 1055 Dutch Neck Road, features dancer/choreographer Susan Osberg and Music of a New Frequency – Anna Dembska and Andrea Goodman. Tickets are $10 at the door.

Performing artists Osberg, Dembska and Goodman have created work professionally for decades at the forefront of experimental music and dance in New York City and now all live in Maine. Last year they performed to a full house with Ocean of Being at St. Paul’s Chapel, recently restored and known for its acoustics. This year they will show a first performance of "Love Lies Bleeding," exploring themes of love, mortality and renewal threaded through an Inuit folk tale, Taoist philosophy, cosmic winds, and a plant called love-lies-bleeding.

Osberg is director of Workwith Dancers Company in New York and has performed internationally. Her meditative and spiritual studies with masters of all cultures have enhanced her living practice in the dance of life. Also a writer and filmmaker, her current film projects are "Remembering Pina" and "Mining the Moon." Her writing Dancing the Talk is included in newly released "Body as Language: An Anthology." She lives in Waldoboro and Beacon, New York.

Vocal innovators Dembska and Goodman have performed in Maine together since 2012 as Music of a New Frequency, creating spontaneous songs, improvisational journeys, and vibrational transmissions. These groundbreaking sonic explorers have combined their voices and original compositions in concert since their 1986 collaboration It's Gonna Be at La Mama Experimental Theater Club in New York City.
