FrenetiCore presents an evening of dance for the camera at Frenetic Theater on Friday, December 7, 2012 at 8pm. The screenings will include The All Hands Meeting, a new work by Rebecca French, Drain by Ashley Horn and other films to be announced.
Set in a surreal office, Rebecca French’s The All Hands Meeting investigates a space with warped gravity and a main character searching for an escape from her sterile work environment. A powerful solo by Mallory Horn and an ethereal duet with Horn and Carlos Guzman beautifully depict the desired escape from reality. The audience’s perspective is skewed with co-workers falling up and down the walls, in and out of doors and effortlessly climbing the furniture. The choreography features daring drops, inversions, and group lifts along with dream-like, sustained gestures. The dancers’ movements combined with film editing by Robert Thoth create a powerful escape from reality. Performed by Kira Boerkircher, Dorianne Castillo, Carlos Guzman, Mallory Horn, Taylor Martin, and Mollie Miller. Choreography by Rebecca French with contributions from the performers. Film and Set Design by Robert Thoth.
Drain, a short dance film by Ashley Horn, is a modern love story told through the mutual discovery and courtship of subterranean pipe dwellers. Themes of fear of intimacy, conflict, compromise, and acceptance are explored in a striking two-tone world of concrete and sludge. Drain features dancers Shanon Adams and Alex Soares and was filmed in Houston's runoff water drainage system.
More films to be announced. For more information please visit www.freneticore.net.
