There Was Nothing – Choreographed by Movement Art Is (Jon Boogz & Lil Buck)
This piece features original poetry written and performed by Robin Sanders. “Before the planets, stars, or being, there was nothing. Until the trinity, oxygen, fuel, and heat.” It goes on to describe the creation of earth, humans, and the intertwined and complex relationship between the two in a very artistic style. As this recording plays, the dancers perform these concepts in expert fashion and fluid movement. It’s an especially memorable moment as the dancers portray five stages of the development of man into a being standing straight up on two feet.
Third Coast Percussion create a very moody sound that is ideal for a tensely dramatic scene. For the first piece, it works perfectly. However, 80 minutes straight of this music without melody is difficult to take. Add to that fact that there is no intermission, and it’s a true test of the attention span of the audience for an art form that demands ones undivided mental and emotional presence.
