THE SPARKS PROJECT
Moving from a hands and feet on project to a digital presentation that will do justice to the artistry of our performing, visual and writing artists is the challenging task at hand.
However, the SPARKS theme of Connect – Disconnect- Reconnect remains solidly intact. We plan to present a video production and art exhibition Fall of 2020 at the Studio@620 during an ArtWalk with a limited audience in attendance.
PLAN OF ACTION: Following the theme, three dance artists will create 2-3 minute solos that will be joined to create a finished dance work. It will then be integrated into three paintings inspired by our theme and the dancers’ choreography. As the work progresses, a new script and spoken word score by Sheila Cowley and music by Tom Sivak will be created to connect the segments. Jim Rayfield will direct. Safe space permitting, I will create a movement finale.
We are blessed with a very diverse set creative artists and we, happily, expect some lively conversation and artistic reconfigurations to take place prior to the final production.
A plan to film and to visually connect us while work is in progress is in the works.
Dancers include: Helen Hansen French, Jessica Obiedzinski, Fernando Chonqui; Visual Artists include: Carrie Jadus, Tony Palm, Ana Maria Vasquez; Actors to be announced.
