Day 10 - R&D - South east dance
As we are heading towards a week break we spent the day recapitulating most of our sequences in their order of appearance.
I think our concerto looks great. I am just a bit sceptical about the intro but as we have our composer jumping in from our next rehearsing day, we will sort everything out with him.
In just a week we went from a 7'40 min to a 4'40 sequence in keeping exactly the same material! Thumb up girls!
Laura's solo is really in shape now. It is fun and entertaining to watch. I can't wait to see what our composer will do to with it. Don't you?
The trick in this sequence is to arrive at the end of the count with an impact. That way it looks like there is a slight pause after each action and makes everything neater!
This unison is also getting better. It is actually quite hard for the dancer to stay in unison with their different shapes as some take longer than other to execute a movement.
We have come up with words describing this sequence. Here they are: Tender, Sweet, Playful, Complicity. We will develop the duet so that all these words are seen by the audience.
Our T1 trio is probably now in its final version. We will have to slightly adapt our timing to the music but otherwise I really like how the speed and travelling gradually increases. In two weeks we will add a new section at the end of this one to introduce the various shapes and their relationship to one another.
Today we played with the coloured side of our shape to make sure it is visible most of the time for the audience. The timing is much clearer and our transition doesn't look like one anymore!
Watch our imageries section with the help of a spot light and final cut pro! It shows a bit more what I have in mind. The timing of each scene will be defined by our composer.
Have a look at our rolling section. This sequence still needs a bit more work but the essence is there. The dancers should move continuously at the same speed with their shape to exit the stage.
Hannah's solo is now just waiting for a music to accompany her dance. It plays with speed, travel, imageries,... It has a touch of humour and I can't take my eyes away from it!
See you in two weeks as we are off to build a new tangram ...
