Motivated Movement at ODC
and the piece they performed "After 5:00" was amazing. It was interesting to hear that they rarely dance a piece as a duet because of their process of collaboration with other dancers. However, this evening, they danced a duet, powerful and beautifully staged. I enjoyed the narrative and while it isn't important for me to understand the choreographer's meaning (as in Holly's piece) i appreciated it here. Again, they spoke eloquently about dance and i appreciate the thought, the process, their passion and it inspires me as a painter. It was interesting for me to hear that many if not all of their pieces have to do with intimate relationships. I think of my current work as intimate relationships between colors. Each color i place , each brush stroke i lay on the canvas will affect it's predecessors and will influence my choice for the next color and placement. Objects will form, new color combinations will unfold and it seems i have no control over that process.
Another note about the performance, the audience made insightful comments and i felt i learned a lot about dance from them!
