Alonzo King as part of Dublin Dance Festival
Dance on Film at Project Arts Centre:
Project transforms into a cinema for a series of screenings of full-length dance performances
The iconic American choreographer Alonzo King adds sensuality, fluidity and pure aesthetic pleasure to his virtuoso classical technique in this beautiful choreography.
Constellation came about from a meeting with video artist Jim Campbell who designs and develops movement capturing technologies. The result is both luminous and lucid, encompassing and intimate.
The score meshes Baroque music, sung by the regal Israeli mezzo-soprano Maya Lahyani, with contemporary music by Leslie Stuck, Somei Satoh and Benjamin Juodvalkis.
This special screening will feature a post-show talk with Alonzo King, who is in Dublin with his company for their performance in the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.
