You have to check this out. It’s gorgeous choreography by Philly-based choreographer Meredith Rainey. Or this one. A 3 x 5 inch youtube video has never held my attention so well. I didn’t even need to watch it full screen!
What you need to know– now that you’ve watched the choreography– is that Meredith Rainey is coming here! To Pittsburgh. To KST. And that’s not even the best news. FIVE NATIONAL CHOREOGRAPHERS are joining us for the second annual newMoves Contemporary Dance Festival. Camille A. Brown (NYC), Luke Murphy (NYC), Nichole Canuso (Philadelphia), <fidget>/Megan Bridge (Philadelphia), and of course, Mr. Rainey.
In case you were wondering, <fidget>/Megan Bridge is not an HTML mistake. <fidget> is the name of Bridge’s collaborative company with media artist Peter Price. Here’s some of their latest work– a process project.
This last video I embedded because I really want you to watch it. It’s Camille A. Brown’s work. Brown is dynamic, vibrant, exciting, and I love the site-specific aspects of what she does. And you’ll find her at newMoves!
Let me know what you think of the videos! — Emily
