Dance around town

Thanks to all who came out and supported Aeriosa’s on-site rehearsal and performances on International Dance Day. If you missed the shows you can check out this great clip Shaw TV created for the event:

In other news, dance artist and BNC co-director Julia Carr and I are working on a new piece to premiere at the Firehall Arts Centre this coming Saturday May 10th as part of the BC Buds Spring Arts Festival. Weather permitting, we will be in the outdoor courtyard at 7:15pm and 8:30pm. It’s a wonderful by-donation festival celebrating it’s 10th anniversary this year.

Be graceful in the wind is a solo dance created for Julia Carr, choreographed by Meghan Goodman as a Body Narratives Collective (BNC) collaboration. Both Julia and Meghan had the privilege of dancing in the stunning treetop canopy of the Tofino Botanical Gardens with Aeriosa Dance Society in August 2013. This experience has inspired them to explore the spirit, magic and mystery of the forest. The music composed by Phil Thomson is an excerpt from Filled with Light (created with the IMP Collective through the generous support of the West Point Grey Community Centre, Vancouver Park Board and Loco Moto Art Collective). Costume design and construction is a BNC collaboration with puppet theatre artist Maggie Winston.

Be graceful in the wind is an inversion challenge and salute to the majestic tree.

Finally, here’s a glimpse of Longing and Forgetting an interactive artwork from research exploring how movement can be used more expressively and intelligently with interactive technologies. This collaboration between Matthew Gingold, Thecla Schiphorst, and Philippe Pasquier was up from Jan 24-May 11, 2014 on the Urban Screen in Surrey.

Video characters inhabit the west wall of Chuck Bailey, climbing the wall, sitting on window ledges, and looking out towards the passing SkyTrain in Matthew Gingold, Thecla Schiphorst, and Philippe Pasquier’s new artwork.

The artwork runs as a generative video from January 24 to May 11, and the interactive artwork, where mobile devices control the characters’ movement, will be demonstrated on April 24.
