"Configurations", Festival Dance, The Banff Centre, 2004
Choreography by D.A. Hoskins
This ballet was a beautiful deconstruction of space, body and movement, symbolized by a fragmented tutu, moving from an aerial sun, down to the body of a dancer.
I was inspired by the great works of Alexander Calder. The tutu was created with welded metal petals that could be folded into the body of the garment. The transition from sky to body was an exquisite dance of the tutu itself, each arm bouyant and graceful, until placed in it's final position on the body.
