I've been commissioned to design video projections for Dancers Dancing's piece Extra Extra, at the Firehall Arts Centre from December 1-4th.
Judith Garay, choreographer, has been a longtime colleague of mine, but this is the first time I've been invited to enter into the live performances as a projection designer!
The work is about media, war, sports and entertainment, and has never been performed in its entirety: an earlier production had the misfortune to lose Kevin Bergsma, fabulous dancer, on the DAY of the SHOW to a serious injury!
Choreographed by Judith Garay, artistic director of Dancers Dancing, with commissioned music by Theodore Hamilton, costumes by Margaret Jenkins, lighting by John Carter and video by Flick Harrison. Extra Extra will be performed by ten expressive, strong and versatile dancers of Dancers Dancing.
