Last night was the Spacetaker SPEAKeasy. It was wonderful to have the space to show Points and Coordinates in its early stages. We set up the room semi in-the-square. There were chairs on three sides, and the projector screen on the fourth wall. Quite a few people joined in live feedback through web, twitter and texting. Those responses, in a dialogue, were projected onto the screen as we danced. In a coming post I will address, entertain, and ponder these responses. Excited to do that! Thank you all who came out and give your thoughts through live feedback and the discussion afterward.
I framed the feedback in the model of Fieldwork, which is a weekly/semi-weekly artist work group that I facilitate in Houston. These types of responses come from an experiential place, rather than a directive place. The audience–actually, participants–did this effectively and flawlessly. Bravo and thank you for your thoughts and willingness to join us in this process. Please feel free to make comments that come up on this blog.
SPEAKeasy attendees: have you had any further thoughts about the piece last night or about live feedback in a dance context? Can we expand that dialogue we had last night here?
