WHEN THEY SET THE SEA ON FIRE, NEW YORK CITY, 2014
ADRIFT BETWEEN THE OCEAN AND THE UNIVERSE, NEW YORK CITY, 2014
Brynne Billingsley & Artists presented When They Set the Sea on Fire at TRISKELION ARTS in Brooklyn, NY, October 23-25, 2014.
When They Set the Sea on Fire is available for touring.
The evening features two premieres: "When They Set the Sea on Fire" and "Adrift, Between the Ocean and the Universe". The title piece, an environmental dance for five women, takes inspiration from spirals in both somatics and nature, evoking storms, real and dream-like. An enigmatic trio "Adrift, Between the Ocean and the Universe", set to the music of John Fahey, explores the duality of earth and sky and the desire to understand the world and human spirit through the lens of resiliency. The evening also features a dance film titled "The Answer is Written in the Water", an homage to Billingsley's hometown of New Orleans, LA. A subtle portrait of the intersection between (wo)man and nature, When They Set the Sea on Fire is a nuanced collection of work both personal and universal in its scope.
with Brynne Billingsley, Jenny Campbell, Sammy Donahue, Amy Larson, and Kristen Rizzuto.
