‘Locus’ is a site-specific dance work that animates three distinct spaces in the CSPAC which are transformed into visually compelling sites for movement installations. By requiring each viewer to actively walk at a specified pace around and through the performance sites, Locus interrupts the viewer’s ability to disengage from the environment and heightens awareness of what is seen and what is missed. Live music, costume, lighting and set design are used to underscore both the inherent characteristics and the applied aesthetic choices of each of the three spaces.My collaborators on the project are composer Martin Gendelman, and choreographers Lillian Cho, Brooke Belott and Katie Iacono. Locus was supported by the Prince George’s Arts Council, FY09 for Individual Artist.
