Update on Annie’s portrait

Okay, we have been focusing on brainstorming these last couple weeks since the performance of “Path” at The Warehouse. We have come up with some ideas that we are really excited about, and Annie has ordered a free-standing pole with a base that is flush with the floor. We’ll be able to choreograph portions of her portrait at her house, and in time I will start revitalizing “21 Clichés” as well. There’s always so much to do, but it feels great to work on original material! We will have quite a lot of shooting to do, so that the supplementary film portion can be edited in time, and (unlike “Path”) the soundtrack for this one will hopefully be included on the video (since we have the equipment that can do audio output now). So much to do… So much to do…

New work in progress: Annie’s portrait.

We started working this evening toward what will be our on-going summer repertoire: A solo for Annie, a duet with us both, and a solo for Jack. The solos will be portraits of us, and the material for “V&B” and “The ‘I Do’ Proposal” will be reworked as a three-part, multimedia duet that ties the two multimedia solos to each other. I’m very excited to rework “21 Clichés” for myself, since there are some sections to it that I have felt were amongst my best works to date; however, it will also be intriguing to collaborate with Annie on her self stories. We will be sure to keep you current on how the work progresses!

The Warehouse PAC

We are so excited to be working with Marla Brown up in Cornelius! She is so motivated and helpful (and she rights really amazing press blurbs, too!). We are looking forward to performing in her pristine black box theatre several times a year as we develop more work, and we think her energy and vision have what it takes to help develop the burgeoning arts scene north of Charlotte itself. We will be picking up the floor components in a week, setting up the space, and rehearsing next week! Time flies… Anyway, this is a shout out to Marla Brown and her Warehouse Performing Arts Center. Hey, any mention anywhere helps bulk up your Google results when people search for you, so why not spread some love? :)

Make sure you come see us on September 25, 2010 at 7:30 at The Warehouse! Click here for more details. We will be debuting Annie’s “V&B,” and we’ll also be performing “Suites for the (bitter)sweet” and Jack will be performing the first set of dances he ever choreographed on his own: “Quelques images de Baudelaire: Les fleurs du mal, Suite no. 1” – these were the dances that got him in UCLA!

Dancers dance, they don’t walk (obviously)

Okay, so the running joke amongst most dancers is that we can do anything (except walk). We were rehearsing recently, and as Annie was making her exit during scene 2 of “Path” she started singing and went to take a simple step… It wasn’t so simple after all… I guess she should be glad she swept the floor, since she ate a big slice of it.
