Stage Name and Real Name: Pete Petersen
Instrument: Musical Direction, Composer, Piano, Voice,
Pete’s main ability is to coax the best performances out of others, by
pushing coaxing and bullying until a true synergy is achieved between
the song and the performer carrying it. Although self taught his
pianistic skills are prodigious. He can evoke the feeling of an entire
orchestra from just the piano. His voice while acceptable is better
used to demonstrate his requirements to the performers that follow him.
Pete understands an audience and how to affect them through his
Style of Music: Music Theatre
Not the plink plonk of the music hall, not the syrup of old Broadway.
Pete’s music covers the gamut of contemporary music expression, while
always understanding the baggage that any genre of music brings with it.
If a tango will best demonstrate his theatrical scene then it will be a
tango. Pete is fluent in all forms of music and uses them to drive his
pieces beyond the expectations of his audience.
Pete has trained in the dance all his life. The discipline of the daily
rigor has tuned his body into an explosive weapon able to strike or
parry . Choosing mainly to avoid conflict, his body has served him well
as performers are pushed into places they are not comfortable with. A
disciple of the Japanese dance form Hap Koto , Pete is well able to
defend himself when the need arises.
Pete has lived theatre his entire life. Painting and building sets the
fateful day of Woodstock 94, he came to understand that using theatre as
a vehicle for social change was the only way he could help get society
back online. Dedicating himself to this “The Theatre Company” was
formed, taking performers to new levels of expression and influence.
