I created a sound composition for a dance piece this month. The Work of the Dancer is an audio installation and performance piece that will share dancers’ perspectives on their labour as part of the 2015 Mayworks Halifax Festival.
The dance profession places many physical, mental and emotional demands on its workers, but as with so many artistic endeavours these off-stage efforts are not always exposed or fully understood.
Presented by: SiNS (Sometimes in Nova Scotia) Dance
Audio production: Veronica Simmonds
Choreography: Jacinte Armstrong
Sound composition: Lindsay Dobbin
with performances by: Jacinte Armstrong, Rhonda Baker, Susanne Chui, Ruth-Ellen Kroll Jackson, Sarah Rozee, Elise Vanderborght, and Liliona Quarmyne
Here's article The Coast published about the piece.
And here's a preview of the sound:
