WECreateSpaces premieres at Opening Door Dance Theatre's Avante - Imagination, Ingenuity, Innovation, from 18th-20th October 2018, 7.30pm, at Patti Strickel Harrison Theatre, San Marcos, TX, United States.
WECreateSpaces explores site-specific dance filmed in an urban environment in tandem with live choreography presented on stage. The piece is the latest work by WECreate Productions and features the contributions of visual artist Robert Burton, Head of the Department of Design (Teesside University, UK) and an original score by Jack Laidlaw (Middlesbrough College, UK). The footage, captured in London and projected on multiple layered screens, accentuates the performers’ visceral reactions to the urban environment. WECreateSpaces is an experimental-multidisciplinary-innovative performance that blurs the lines between dance, video, music and textile art.
