Brooklyn Ballet connects dance & digital, Brooklyn & London, and the 19th & 21st centuries
Brooklyn Ballet connects dance & digital,
Artistic director Lynn Parkerson, explains: "Tracing Back reveals an aspect of choreography an audience does not usually see: the floor pathways of the dancers as they travel in real time. I've been thinking about this idea for years and recently stumbled upon a world of techno/digital artists who are passionate about creating something new with ballet as a departure point."
The third dance is the world premiere of Lynn Parkerson's Spiders, Cooks and Mood Swings, a mixed movement mash-up in collaboration with Mike “Supreme” Fields, to Stravinsky's Pulcinella Suite, which presents a "village" scene of controlled mayhem akin to such village scenes in classical ballet with contemporary characters, thus connecting 19th and 21st century aesthetics.
The dancers include Gabriela Galvez, James "J-Floats" Fable, Duane Gosa, Miku Kawamura, Vincent Marra, Sydnie Mosley, Kerry Shea, Candace Thompson and Akiko Tokuoka.
