Wonderland comes to Temple University

Happy New Year everyone and welcome to the 1st photo column of 2015!

So Wonderland comes to Temple University? I should say a portion of Gallim Dance’s piece “Wonderland” choreographed by Andrea Miller and being set on the Temple Dance Department students by Tal Adler Arieli.

I had the chance to stop by Temple to capture a few moments and share them with you all…the piece itself will be performed during the Temple Dance Department’s Faculty Concert where Andrea Miller is presenting her piece as a Guest Artist, January 30th and 31st at Temple’s Conwell Dance Theater.

The challenging part about shooting rehearsal is always lighting which in this case was just work lights in a theater. Worklights are high-intensity light fixtures which are used to illuminate the stage for the benefit of technicians. Basically bright enough to see and work but a tad challenging for freezing movement. You just have to make it work. =)

Enjoy these moments…
