Please join us for a social gathering while we view dance video portraits of some of the leading dancers on the planet.
Dance at the Music Center has invited Dance Camera West to share in the activities celebrating the West Coast premiere of Slow Dancing, an outdoor installation that simultaneously captures the beauty of the body in motion, while exposing its most intricate nuances in larger-than-life video portraits projected on16 foot screens.
The hyper-slow-motion HD video portraits of 45 master dancers are so exquisitely decelerated that each subject's brief original movement — just five or so seconds of a single gesture — is stretched into a ten-minute film.
The project, commissioned by the Los Angeles Music Center is a one-of-a-kind record of some of the world's greatest dance artists representing traditional and contemporary dance forms including: ballet (Herman Cornejo, William Forsythe, Isabelle Guerin, Allegra Kent, Alexei Ratmansky, Wendy Whelan); modern dance (Karole Armitage, Trisha Brown, Holley Farmer, Bill T. Jones, Desmond Richardson, Shen Wei); tap (Roxanne Butterfly); Javanese court dance (Miroto Martinius); Krumping (Lil' C); Voguing (Benny Ninja); Afro-Brazilian Capoeira (Maestre Joao Grande); Hip-Hop (Kwikstep and Rokafella); Indian Kuchipuri (Shantala Shivalingappa); Beijing Opera (Wu Hsing-Kuo) and Flamenco (Omayra Amaya). They come from the U.S., Russia, Guinea, Indonesia, China, Turkey, Brazil, India, Taiwan and New Zealand.
It's free and everyone is welcome!
