Gleich Dances

Title: a white room

Choreographer: Julia K. Gleich

Dancers: Kara Chan, Ahmaud Culver, Tiffany Mangulabnan, Izabela Szylińska

Duration: 7 Minutes


Created during a Norte Maar / Dance at Socrates Residency 2016 at Socrates Sculpture Park.

“a white room” was made in parallel with Debra Ramsay’s investigations of “changes of color and repetitive serial systems”. The dance suggests the nature of a blank canvas upon which a series of evolving lines and color are drawn and structured. Working from the dancers’ own movement affinities and personalities, Gleich draws upon space, color, and character to create a textured and progressive dance.
