The primary tension in Giselle is the question of acceptance: will Albrecht accept Giselle? will she accept him?
On Saturday April 4, 2015, from 6:30-8pm, Human Landscape Dance will host a screening of three of our latest dance videos at Breathing Space, 1123 Pennsylvania Ave SE, Washington DC, 3.5 blocks southeast of the Eastern Market Metro on the blue and orange lines. We also hope to raise funds for our summer trip to shoot video footage in France. We suggest a donation of $50, but everyone is welcome to attend and no amount is too small. There will be improvised dancing in between screenings, no experience necessary. Snacks will be provided.
Over the course of 2014, Human Landscape Dance collaborated on three dance videos, co-directed by Denaise Seals of slingshot video and artistic director Malcolm Shute: Cinderella, Aurora's Dream, and Persephone and Demeter. These dances from our stage repertory were adapted for the screen and recorded in Sky Meadows State Park, Virginia and Abiquiu, New Mexico, including at a beautifully sculpted cavern by Ra Paulette. Members of the company who traveled to these sites not only created work for the screen, but participated in workshops and performances.
In summer 2015, the company, along with videographer Denaise Seals, plans to travel to sites in Brittany, France. We will record footage for dance videos of Coppelia, and Swans at abbeys and outdoor sites to be determined. We deeply appreciate any help you may have to offer to further our artwork this year.
