In Freemove Dance’s debut evening-long work …it’s time… everyone is literally “on the clock.” The piece, choreographed by Jenn Freeman, is conceived as a meditation on each individual’s intricate relationship to time. The work features five dancers whose performances are both constrained and propelled by the presence of a large digital timer, inexorably counting down towards zero. The evocative live drum score, composed by Dani Markham (Childish Gambino), serves as the soundtrack to the dance conceived as a metaphor of a lifetime – one long, cinematic take in which performers transition through changing ambiances, styles, and energies.
The work features five dancers: Maddison Burg, Mia DeWeese, Matt Luck, Christopher Ralph, and Chelsea Thedinga. Dani Markham’s score for the piece will be performed live by Price McGuffey. The lighting design of the piece is by the 2010 Bessie-winner Philip Treviño (awarded for his work on Pam Tanowitz’s Be In The Gray With Me) and costumes are designed by Mondo Morales (known for his work with Alvin Ailey II.)
