I’m having my first rehearsal with the full cast tonight so they will begin learning the choreo tonight. My choreography will include 3 genres of dance modern, contemporary, with a splash of hip-hop. The movement contain various ”lines” and “shapes” as well. My goal is for the dancers to express vulnerability in their movement as well as their emotions/feelings. My costumes will be very comfortable with a “nonchalant“ attitude added on to it. I was thinking of having their costumes be neutral colors, such as black, grey or white. The dancers will wear black tights/leggings with an oversized t-shirt (grey/white). Im thinking of filming this dance in the Black Box Theatre. Filming will contain of low/high/wide angles, close ups and will also be filmed in a continuous circular motion. For lighting, I’m still imaging what will be best for the piece, and that will definitely be figured out as time goes on and I see how the choreography looks on my cast. Maybe that will help me envision what that may be.
