HERE: Solo Dance for Camera Virtual Showcase (April 26)
SOLO DANCE FOR CAMERA VIRTUAL SHOWCASE
Starting April 26, 7pm (eastern) for two-weeks, we invite you for a screening of original dance films made by Tufts University students and faculty, in a project entitled HERE. The live stream performance is completely free, but we ask that you please reserve a spot to access the livestream.
About the Work:
Throughout the semester, faculty artists Daniel McCusker and Jaclyn Waguespack have developed unique experiments for students in the Solo Dance for Camera course to explore sourcing and sequencing movement from everyday gestures, objects, spaces.
How do you make new work, and share it, within the limitations imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic? How do you integrate movement, camera and real-world sites, to make innovative work? How do you dance with the camera and make it a partner? What unique opportunities do the camera and editing provide? What conventions of concert dance are useful to retain in this new context? What gets jettisoned? HERE showcases the results of engaging in this creative process. Works by: Emily Aronson, Mae Briody, Melissa Cepeda, Anna Cherian, Abrina La Rose, Mariangela Morales, Joslin Regalado, Oscar Rosales, Leonardo Ruiz Sanchez, and Sophie von Muench.
