The videodance below is entitled “Motion Control” and I’m absolutely in love with it. The soundscore alone is mesmerizing. Enjoy!

Also, I really appreciated the ending credits when they give you a glimpse of the equipment and techniques used to create this film.

Created by Liz Aggiss, Billy Cowie, and David Anderson

Below is a clip of Wayne McGregor/Random Dance’s “Entity”. It reminded me of the isolated melting quality that I miss doing/seeing – I have to bring that back into “Chalk Boundaries”.

Salvador DalĂ­ Soft Self Portrait with Grilled Bacon, 1941

A piece that I found inspiring for an upcoming, all male choreographic work that focuses on the idea of masculinity.

Dance,Technology, and Space

I came across this company while I was surfing the web to see what’s going on in the dance community outside of OSU. The company is called Chunky Move and I took this quote from their website:

Chunky Move’s work constantly seeks to redefine what is or what can be contemporary dance within an ever-evolving Australian culture.

The way that they blend lighting and video is inspiring because every aspect seems like a necessity. Sometimes when technology is incorporated into dance, one or the other seems out of place or unnecessary. But Chunky Move makes everything congeal; it doesn’t appear as if it’s a dance/video/lighting performance. They also play with space by doing site specific work and building different spacial configurations (such as a tilting oval). Below are excerpts from Mortal Engine.

Music Selection: Cliff Martinez

The wonderful thing about dance is that is a collaborative art, and one aspect that I always enjoy is music. I’m looking around for music for both “Run” and Buddy and I came across Cliff Martinez. The clip I posted is a song that I’m interested in from the soundtrack Solaris. I like the atmospheric feel that it provides while providing interesting rhythmic sections. The piece made me get up and start improvising.

I’m thinking about using this track for both “Run” and Buddy. I think these works will be connected in many ways so I may use the music as  another way to demonstrate that connection.
