We are two weeks into rehearsals now and some intriguing movement vocabulary is developing. I had reviewed the videos from prior rehearsals and chose the movements, concepts, and moments that peaked my curiosity. I presented those concepts to the dancers for another round of movement explorations, asking them to focus on these scraps and bits of movement to see where it would lead them. Each of the experiments for this last rehearsal derived from the results of the prior rehearsals.
Currently, the dancers and I seem interested in the vocabulary developing that comes from interdependent, organic momentum where the dancers move into and through the floor in fluid movement patterns that could only be found in the space of ability between two or more dancers. The video captures some of these raw moments.
Please, if you feel so inclined, take a moment and share your thoughts. And, Kam - since your comments indicated you liked Kat's foot dance - the opening and closing are from an exploration we did just for you.
