OPEN FOR DANCING 2013
We will be staging the latest incarnation of “Refract”, September 21st and 22nd, in Newport Rhode Island, as part of the Open For Dancing 2013. Island Moving Co. stages this collaboration between, visiting choreographers and local dance practitioners, annually, in Newport, Rhode Island. Find out more about the festival here.
I collaborated on this durational dance piece with Choreographer Deborah Lohse, and sound designer Brandon Wolcott, this summer, at “The Yard”, on Martha’s Vineyard. In it, I constructed wearable embellishments from chandelier crystals upon Ms. Lohse, while she performed a sustained pastiche of movement and choreography, culled from fashion show conventions and magazine editorials.
For the festival, we are expanding the work for a performance ensemble, comprised of a dozen women of various ages, with different body types, and levels of dance training. The work references an array of adornment rituals, and is intended to amplify the inherent beauty that every human individual possesses. If you happen to live near Newport, stop by and take in the splendor!
