Photography Workshop with Lois Greenfield and Australian Dance Theatre
Sat 31 March 2006, 12.00pm - 2.00pm
Festival Theatre, Edinburgh
Australian Dance Theatre is bringing their outstanding show Held to the Festival Theatre on Friday 30 and Saturday 31 March. Different at each performance, the quick-fire ballistic rampage from these astonishingly athletic dancers is captured via a series of photographs, instantaneously enlarged and flashed onto giant screens. Projected behind these dancers, these amazing images allow us to see and experience movement in startlingly unexpected ways.
For Held, Choreographer Garry Stewart works in close collaboration with the renowned New York photographer Lois Greenfield. Together they’ve interpreted the raw energy of the dance with the lens, screen and eye, so altering our perceptions of time and reality. Performers frozen in space preserve a moment, and lead the viewer to ponder the moments before and after the slice of time captured by her camera. Greenfield's work inspires us to re-evaluate how we see the performance, and movement, in particular. Please see www.loisgreenfield.com for more information and to see samples of her work.
