Frame Dance at Rice University this Past Weekend
This past Friday, April 18 we presented our film Quiver and an excerpt of FM in Mark Hirsch’s Master’s Recital at the Shepherd School of Music. Don’t know what these pieces are? Here’s a little refresher:
“Eerie electronic music by Mark Hirsch amplifies the unsettling elements, punctuating the piece with shifts in sonic structure to galvanize our attention…Hance frames her dancers in each shot with a keen eye for proportion, letting the shot’s visual organization register before a movement sequence begins.” -Arts + Culture Magazine
Premiered at DiverseWorks last summer, collaborator Mark Hirsch sought to create a space where, in the midst of our frantically-paced days, we can explore a slower tempo of experience–where we can get in close and listen to the soft, intimate stories of complete strangers.
This program by composer Mark Hirsch also included new music for harp with wind chimes, string quartet, and guitar.
The wonderfully talented Jonathon Hance took pictures of the evening, so I thought I’d share them with you!
Thanks to the GREAT crowd who came to the show!
