Living without a Red Cape has been an amazing transformative rehearsal process. I can still see questions in the dancers face in terms of making sense of the continuous layering of movement. As the dancer searches for the source of intent, the dance is finally being crystalized in some chronological "order".
An excerpt will be performed at Rootead on April 14th, 2018 at 6:30PM (Spring Choreographer Showcase)
The full piece will be premiered at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts on May 1st at 12PM
Kickstarter coming soon. Backers of this project will see the process of “Living without a Red Cape” from beginning to end. Follow me creating the art I fully believe in.
Working with a youth company has been amazing. The process of developing the movement and thematic structure of the dance was organic. I enjoyed finding movement that best suited the young dancers' natural talent in conveying emotion. The piece has independent choreographic choices that lives on its own, but it also takes into account the narrative imagery created by "She" - Laura Mvula.
Hope to see you all at the performance!
Going to be premiered at RADfest
MARCH 11th at 3PM at the Epic Center in Kalamazoo
The inspiration was rooted in my personal emotional analysis and the romanticized version of “Love”, as well as the dancers.
