Take a Deep Breath - Art That Moves explores the emotional connection to place through 2 works: A Vivid Sense of Place and Double Take

Take a Deep Breath explores the emotional connection to place. There are distant or remote landscapes known through photographs or through other details supplied by the imagination. Close to home, places are experienced daily or so frequently that a second look is warranted. Jane Franklin Dance brings both perspectives to life in a dance event that encompasses two works:

A Vivid Sense of Place engages the possibilities of wide open space. This dynamic work, with music by DC composer Steven Rogers, transforms verbal descriptions of untouched landscapes in Iceland, Scotland, Kalahari Desert and the Andes into raw and untamed movement.

Double Take compares two experiences of ’seeing.’ First, dancers perform in front of interior video of the familiar Torpedo Factory Arts Center. The dancers perform the same movement that is seen in the video as it is being seen. The audience is then led to the site where the video was recorded, and the dancers repeat the movement in its original location. Each viewer determines a preferred meaning..the movement in connection to the distancing of video or in connection to the interior architecture itself.
