The Shirt April 28, 2014 | kasem_ | More on Performance
This contemporary piece leaves an open ended answer to what the shirt represents. There is…type of relationship between the dancers, also the dancers with the shirt. The movement is inspired by the different qualities in the music. As the choreographer, my intention was to build a connection between the performers by showing how we can all experience something similar whether it be positive or in this case, a negative stronghold. If we allow ourselves let others help us to let it go then we can truly invest and receive the love that is all around us.Read More

RHAPSODY | Choreography by ERIK SARADPON April 24, 2014 | eriksaradpon | More on Performance
I am so thankful to be a choreographer and to work with talented artists on…daily basis. For the last four years, I have entered the Capezio ACE Awards submitting what I thought was the best work I had ever done. And each year I always seem to be more proud of my vision. I think it is becoming clearer as I become older. A good friend of mine says that my choreography entertains the father and brother in the audience who generally don't want to be at that dance show. I take that as such a compliment because all I want to do is entertain. And hopefully, I can make people smile, cry, escape, hope, and everything in between, through my choreography. This particular dance, RHAPSODY, is one's confrontation with self-identity, perspective, imagination, and reality. I used the landscape of mimes to tell the story because a picture is worth a thousand words, even when words cannot be spoken. I want the audience to interpret stories of their own as they enjoy the hip hop vocabulary set to a classic rock anthem. Oh the juxtaposition! I don't know where this entry will take me. I have never given up on my dream, and I believe my journey has so many surprises in store. But in the meanwhile, I hope someone can enjoy this piece of my work.
