Chasing Darkness Part One

dancers: Robert Kingsbury and Brian Solomon
Chasing Darkness Part One is a duet with two dancers and numerous video projections triggered by sensors on the dancers’ bodies. Media artist Steve Daniels has created customized responsive media applications that cause video images to shift and morph in response to the dancers’ movements.

Chasing Darkness Part Two
dancers: Whitney Hewitt, Robert Kingsbury, Brian Solomon
In Chasing Darkness Part Two is inspired by the concept of psychogeography: that place has a profound effect on emotions and how the body behaves. The dancers have taken stories from their past, both true and fabricated, to explore how places, and memories of places, trigger movements, as well as how movement effects the places we are. A highly physical work with intricate partnering between the three dancers, Part Two also features the dancers performing original vocals and sounds that have been developed in the rehearsal process.
