Nichole Canuso Dance Company takes TAKES to New York City in JanuaryDec 23rd, 2011 | By | Category: Partner Publication - FringeArts
TAKES came into being during a residency at our Live Arts Brewery (LAB) and premiered at the 2010 Philadelphia Live Arts Festival. Next, Nichole Canuso Dance Company will present the piece in New York from January 5th – 8th at 3LD Art and Technology Center.
Conceived by choreographer Nichole Canuso and multimedia director Lars Jan, TAKES immerses you in a shimmering world where live action and lost moments intersect. Barely separated from the audience by the thin membrane of a room-sized projection box, this haunting duet flickers between memories and an intimate, visceral present. A sensual melding of live bodies and film, TAKES manifests, reframes, refracts and spatially unfolds the forgotten moments of a relationship in real-time. Throughout the performance the audience is free to wander and shift perspective around the installation. Canuso performs alongside Dito Van Reigersberg (Pig Iron Theatre Company) in this panoramic marriage of choreography and film.
