if you've got some time wednesday night, i urge you to go see "shen wei
dance arts" (http://www.shenweidancearts.org/) performing in reynolds
theater at duke. [tickets: http://events.duke.edu/box_office/]
"...a dreamlike otherworld of intense movement that falls somewhere
between modern dance, performance art, painting, and sculpture."
the hour-long work focuses on connections between dancers...
connections between music and dance... connections between dance and
other art forms (specifically painting). connections and transference.
it sounds heady --and i suppose in some sense it is (music by ligeti
and xenakis)-- but i left the theater with a distinct sense of
satisfaction, having seen something thoroughly complete and fulfilling.
you'll see some beautiful, spiraling, flowing movement alongside
jittery, jerky jumping. but you'll also see art created
-multidimensionally- before your eyes.
go go go.
