Moves After Dark — Go Now!

FullSizeRender

Last week, we were excited to post about a special event in Los Angeles happening at The Music Center — Moves After Dark.

And yes, a Daily Concepts’ team member was “front row and center” for the very first performance and had some wet attire to prove it!

Tonight and tomorrow at 8:30 p.m. are the final performances. Having been there and experienced this contemporary, site-specific event, we can’t express the following adamantly enough — DON’T MISS IT!

As mentioned last week, there are four dance troupes participating at various sites. First stop for us was the Mark Taper Forum pond.

A soulful voice captured our attention, as a woman dressed solely in white entered the scene. What commenced next — dancers from Ana Maria Alvarez’s CONTRA-TIEMPO bursting into movement as part of Agua Furiosa, a work inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest and Oya, burst onto the scene.

When the dance subsided, our group moved to its next location — the steps of the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Waiting there was a performance from Lulu Washington Dance Theatre: Message for My Peeps: The Message, Installation #5 (2011), choreographed by Associate Director Tamica Washington-Miller.

Another figure, dressed solely in white, serves as a sage to a young girl, leading her through tumult resulting from economic downturn and resulting public reaction.

A somber throng made their way to their third stop of the evening — the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion’s Founders’ Room.

Here, a group of white clad dancers from Ate9 dANCEcOMPANY brought levity to the audience through interactive antics. Daily Concepts even had the opportunity to share a bowl of popcorn with one of the dancers as part of the performance.

For the evening’s final performances, all of the audience groups came together in The Music Center’s plaza.

A a large-scale sculptural installation by artist Gustavo Godoy had promised something special was afoot for the grand finale.
