A Picture of You Falling : Crystal Pite, Choreography
This piece features two dancers repeatedly falling. Over electronic music, a voice narrates the fall: knees, hip, elbow, shoulder, head. The narration is reminiscent of Stranger Than Fiction. In both cases, the spoken words describe the action exactly as it is happening in a calm female voice.
The excellent music composition for this work is by Owen Belton. It’s a very unique piece that is truly a work of art.
The Other You : Crystal Pite, Choreography
This piece also features music by Owen Belton along with “Moonlight Sonata”, aka Piano Sonata No. 14 in C Sharp Minor, Op. 27 No 2 by Ludwig van Beethoven. It is also another duet.
With this strategy of having all the pieces done by the same choreographer, you really get a sense for her style. But at the same time, it takes away from the variety that is usually a major component of a Hubbard Street show.
