Norte Maar collaborates with ODETTA to present “a white room”
October 1, 2016, 6:00 pm-6:15 pm
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.
