I’ll truly miss Culture Front gatherings this winter, and was glad to see such a full room at last week’s final event for the season.
In case you couldn’t make it, the evening featured dancers from Hole Dance Films, a Dancers’ Workshop partner. Hole Dance makes dance films–the action is dance. October 25th’s demonstration shined a light on how dancers are directed and prompted for the purposes of film. Participating dancers were given a series of exercises and improvisational opportunities, which they in turn performed for the audience. Just as folks were wondering when the talk might begin, the “talk” suddenly came lyrically into being: dancers came to life, moving through the crowd and around the space.
