Details: About See Between the Lines
See Between the Lines is a performance of movement and visual art, an open invitation to experience the works as they ‘wash over you.’ Similarly as ‘read between the lines,’ hints at a meaning beyond the written word, See Between the Lines provokes a response to the moving image. The three works on the program are collaborations with visual artists.
In Incidence, a life-size kinetic sculpture by Howard Connelly is manipulated by the dancers, to restrict and elevate their relationship to each other, to the space or to the structure. As dancers move the sculpture from vertical and horizontal configurations, the axis of the central support creates a vortex drawing the performers to curved pathways that surround the sculpture and each other.
Nested is performed with Rosemary Covey’s Not A Day Goes By, a visual art piece created by using eight wood blocks printed on Japanese paper and painted. The work references memory and loss but can also be viewed as a scene purely from nature, it is up to the viewer. Elements from the visual work, small shimmering flower petals, come to life as they float suspended in air or in response to the quick passages of the performers.
“Wash Over You,” is a story in movement and text maneuvered via foot lockers, picket signs, and shelf paper. A group of travelers search for the mystery behind an unpredictable, serene yet powerful river. There are many roads to choose from but which one to go down? There are many stopping places but can they get ‘off the boat?” No man is an island, but who will help them along? Recycled materials, contributed by UpCycle, an Alexandria-based creative reuse center, are transformed. Art work is created in real time by artist Susan Miranda.
