Choreography/Music selection by Christal Wagner


Landscape and dance mix into one another, honoring place, space, and the human body in various states of motion. Choreography was created under the East/West Freeway in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where the majority of the film was also captured. Architecture, traffic, and urban transit translate into chaotic and angular choreography and partner work. Public and personal spaces are examined- how does choreography change when brought into a formal space? How can an indoor, 2D projection capture the energy of an outdoor, 3D space? How does music selection change, aid, or distract from these ideas and themes?
