Alison Cook Beatty Dance presents DANCE LIKE NO ONE IS WATCHING
Alison Cook Beatty Dance
We are excited to share an extraordinary project with you on May 25th at 7 p.m. ET via YouTube titled “Dance Like No One Is Watching." This dance film is dedicated to all of the dancers and backstage workers who have been affected by COVID-19.
Choreographed on Zoom and filmed at the historic Strand Theatre in Boston, this project sought to capture the magic of the theater, dance, and the team of talented individuals — on-stage and off-stage — that brings the work to fruition.
With inspiration from a prompt, I presented to our community, "What does the theater mean to you?" I brought those inspiring sentiments into the virtual rehearsal process with dancer Nika Antuanette. I worked with dancer Miranda Stuck and lighting designer Tony Marques to incorporate the public's messages into the dance film, filmed by Ellen Maynard.
A story that unfolded and we share with you on May 25th at 7 p.m. A sold-out theater, a solo rehearsed for months and ready for the premiere, a team at work, and an audience awaiting an evening of dance... when sometimes life takes unexpected turns. With art imitating life, sometimes a dance is much more than a dance; but a reflection of who we are and how we work together.
We will be back in a theater soon! Please help us get there by purchasing a ticket to this premiere and/or making a tax-deductible donation of any kind to this premiere. https://alisoncookbeattydance.networkforgood.com/
Join us on YouTube on May 25th as we celebrate the theater and those that bring dance to life and support all of the artists and theater workers Alison Cook Beatty Dance works with each day. From our beautiful dancers to the ones you don't see— the lighting designers, the costume designers, the musicians, composers, film editors, photographers, videographers, crew, and the entire production team. It takes a village to create magic. We have many superstars onstage and off.
We want to thank Matthew Breton of The Strand Theater, the Mayor's Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs, and the City of Boston. We also thank Jessica Gordon Academy of Performing Arts in Revere, MA, and the Brookline Ballet School in MA for helping us with rehearsal space.
