2×5 with Liminal Space, a success!
I hope you had a joyous Christmas and have some funky New Year’s plans. I had fun checking out Emily’s New Year’s Party advice on the Links We Like Friday today. (check it out!)
Joel Luks of Culturemap wrote this about our work:
“Hance, as she explained, responded to the music by creating a framework anchored by clearly defined matrices that expanded from their contained spatial area, both in terms of the use of space and the movement vocabulary. What began with four dancers walking in unison, which echoed the tonal center of the music, broke away into independent pathways that developed into leaping solos, duets and trios.
Her approach mirrored the aesthetic of minimalism, which exploits what can be achieved with a limited number of elements.
What was remarkable in Hance’s choreography is that she offered another access point for listeners to synthesize the perceived monotony of Reich’s work. Whether on purpose or by accident, the dance provided an opportunity to better understand the score while juxtaposing an emotional abstract narrative that centered on how it feels to be released from a restrained environment — a triumph for Liminal Space, Hance and dancers Jacquelyne Jay Boe, Laura Gutierrez, Ashley Horn and Alex Soares.” You can read the whole article here.
I wanted to post some incredible photos from the performance of Steve Reich’s 2×5 that we did earlier this month with Liminal Space Contemporary Music. The photos are by David DeHoyos and we are so thankful to him!
You can click on any of the photos and view the gallery.
Warmest wishes and as always,
