36 000 pictures of everyday, life, and love accumulate and flicker in rainbow order (ROYGBIV) over an interior monologue—where the dancers attempt to fly “Over A Rainbow” and in doing so portray a bold prayer, so that audiences observe:
—That flying isn’t natural, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t do it
—That falling is a part of flying
At SQx, use choreology (study of dance science and notation) to create movement and tell stories. Our intent is that with clarified movement coupled with with video / photo projection, we are able to increase audience engagement—because of the increased ability of the audience to be perceive themes, symbols, and the struggle of the performers. Our hope is that with the combination of choreology and projection–audiences will be more engaged as a consequence of their enhanced understanding of the performance.
The video installation shows time increasing in speed, and is an overwhelming experience on the senses. The work shows and feels great emotion (though we understand it can be abstractly interpreted)–while the dance is relatively more peaceful, but discomforting. It is a graceful dichotomy.
