A Year From Now Ago June 3, 2015 | ALD2DT | More on Ballet
At a certain point as my mother lay in the hospital slowly dying I realized…watching the orderly and systematic routine of the nurses and doctors coming and going from the room, as well observed the traveling of her focus to who she would say were "their" visitations (the spirits) I understood that it wasn't just that she was dying but more so that as I'd sat there in the hospital what she was enabling me to do and giving life to was this piece. Her constant urging of me to look ahead, firmly plant feet now and reflect back on all that she was to me then is what made A Year From Now Ago. This work is about what often is said to be that last moment and flash of your life before your eyes in the end. Each section takes you through a fantasy of herself, which becomes the reality and her nightmare and leads to her inevitable departure.Read More
Neutral June 2, 2015 | Nsubbloie | More on Performance
"Neutral" is my senior thesis that I presented in the winter of 2014 at the…of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. I wanted to work with the idea of "egocentrism" and show how importance the role of confidence is mentally and physically in a human body. The nude represents a blank slate for personality, neutrality, and meaning, and the french music presents a mysterious atmosphere for the dancers to find themselves. Originally I had a total of 5 dancers but one broke her ankle a few weeks into rehearsals so it ended up being performed with 4 dancers. I am planning on adding if not one, but two more dancers if chosen for the A.C.E. awards.Read More
Original "Feet"ure June 2, 2015 | Jayjan300 | More on Tap
The inspiration and the development from start to finish is Jason's own organic vision and…Using his voice as the backdrop, the music was recorded and materialized in only one take! His voice and their feet create symmetry by matching sound for sound. The steps, although technically advanced, are relatable and complimentary to the body of work. Each phrase of the routine has it's own personality and the dancers bring it to life with their enthusiasm. A true representation of the passionate and creative artist he is.Read More
