What an opportunity. HERE is one the best arts organizations in the city and I am honored to be part of their calendar and to premiere Atomic Orbital, learn about this dance below. Our productions are supported by our presenters, but we need your contributions to support the artists involved. We are on the way, but still need to raise an additional $5,000 to get through August 30th.
What will happen one second from now?
Il Futuro explores the illusion of the present moment and the quickly planned future, iteration, brightness, and dancing in total darkness.
In early winter 2014, Peterson made this dance and film to force herself to examine her relationship to the immediate choices she makes and her imagined body 20 years from now.
Join me for a special workshop at the SOAK Festival on Tuesday , June 2.
3 hours of Improvising, making movement, big dancing and a little on choreographic strategy.
This workshop is highly physical and blends full-bodied and dynamic movement with elements of improvisation to create a sense of continuity, athleticism and detailed dancing.
Participants begin with focusing exercises designed to support the experience of looking closely at the space around them as they simultaneously bring awareness to the body’s internal systems and small continuous movements that connect the outside with the inside. With this awakened state, the dancing becomes fuller as participants find clarity in the body through contemporary dance technique and work toward an understanding of how these elements relate to the concepts that are at the heart of Laura Peterson’s choreographic process and the resulting dancing.
Laura Peterson Choreography performs The Futurist: part 2 at Rutgers University
September 5 &6 at 7:30PM.
Loree Dance Theater
The Futurist: Part 2 is influenced by the multiple manifestos of the early 20th century Futurist Movement. The complex and highly physical choreography reflects the Futurists’ interest in dynamism, speed and the connection of the body to machine while simultaneously expressing the uniquely human experience of imagined possible futures.
