How do we find words to describe something as fleeting and physical as dance? Do dancers think in words while they are dancing, or in some other language? How do writers create a sense movement with immobile words on a page? How does writing inspire dancers and choreographers, and how can they share that inspiration with their audience?
Baltimore’s Full Circle Dance Company, well-known for its thematic choreography projects, has spent 2012 exploring the connections between dance and literature, movement and writing. On October 4 (preview), 6 and 7 the company will present Moving Passages, the first of two full concerts inspired by this theme.
Drawing on sources as varied as twitter feeds, Shakespeare, autobiographical writings, Edgar Allan Poe, the Bible, and poet Jill Scott, each of six choreographers has tackled writing from a different angle. The resulting performances continue Full Circle’s tradition of creating a platform for diverse artistic visions unified by an overarching concept.
Also, on Sunday, October 7, Morton Street Dance Center Repertory and Radius Dancers present their first Repertory Ensemble Showcase.
The show begins at 2pm. Tickets are $5.
