October 8 - October 9, 2010
Newly-founded Luminarium Dance Company presents new work by choreographers Merli V. Guerra and Kimberleigh A. Holman in their debut concert ‘FRACTURE.’ Utilizing the talents of local dancers and musicians, FRACTURE examines human themes and interactions with the use of live music, innovative lighting design, and video projection with live performance.
The program includes four original works, as well as an experiment in improvisation and a short film. A large group piece and an intimate duet come to the stage space under the direction of Kimberleigh Holman. The former is a visual exploration of Miles Davis’ composition Indigo, from his Aura album, and also considers the theme of chaos in the eyes and ears of the audience. Her duet takes place over the span of a night and conveys through self and shadow figures the idea that however desperate life gets, the value of self always counter balances those negative aspects. Finally, Holman is pleased to present an experiment in improvisation, created in close collaboration with a trio of Berklee College of Music students led by Jennifer Allen. Drawing upon a minimal movement vocabulary and an ever changing musical score, the piece will merge music and dance with improvised lighting to create ten minutes of choreography that will never be seen again!
Award-winning filmmaker Merli Guerra presents three works integrating dance and video projection. In addition to showing her latest dance film, which has been described by viewers as a “moving painting,” Guerra presents two new works: The first is a comical, yet touching, take on modern relationships and the words we think yet never speak; the second is an attempt to capture the frustration of memory loss through moving imagery, live performance and the tearing of paper screens.
