Interlacing 312


SCROLL DOWN

Interlacing 312


Interlacing 312 explores the possibilities of movement juxtaposition. The dance was created by putting only ten basic movements into different orders and using different motifs of repetition in order to create solo phrases. The solos, then, are layered on top of each other, studied, and edited to become a coherent and interlocking duet while dancers almost never touch each other.

Our memories pass through me like that meteor shower sky


Our memories pass through me like that meteor shower sky


Our Memories Pass Through Me Like That Meteor Shower Sky is an installation set in a classroom at the University of Utah. Drawn on the choreographer's fond memory of past relationship - the installation transformed the classroom into a whimsical environment where his story can be retold through visual romanticism. By placing audiences in close proximity to dancers and by constraining the performing space, the piece delivers a sense of intimacy between two human beings. The hanging light curtain acts as the new fourth wall separating the performing and viewing space, while at the same time resembling a starry night. The contrasting black and white feathers deliver stark meaning on vulnerability of different emotional stages. This is one of a few pieces that Dat breaks away from his traditional movement abstraction.
