THE PUBLIC DECIDES
The Public Decides, a collaboration between Erin Bomboy, a choreographer, and Composer’s Voice, an organization devoted to producing short chamber concerts featuring the work of contemporary composers, questions the effect music has on dance.
Can disparate aural soundscapes bring about a divergence of opinions, even if the movement remains unchanged?
Do certain scores elicit deeper and richer performances from dancers?
How does the audience experience dance through music?
We are hoping YOU can help us answer these questions. Please watch the following five videos from our November 18th concert spotlighting dancers Samantha Parsons and Rae Charles. Each video features Erin’s raw and unfinished choreography set to a different musical composition. LIKE the video, which you think best suits the choreography. You can LIKE the video via Facebook or Youtube. Alternatively, email Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org with your choice. Erin would also be pleased to hear any feedback you might have.
The winning piece nets the composer $250 and an opportunity to finish the composition. Erin will reset the current movement to fit the winning composition and complete the piece. The work will premiere in full on Wednesday, January 23rd as part of Movement Research’s Open Performance Series.
