View and Download: LONELAND Program

Join us for an evening of dance cinema expressing a myriad of dance and music genres, embracing the distinctive voices of the female dancers of The Moving Architects.  LONELAND features dances performed in site-specific locations throughout the NYC-area alongside company dance works translated to the screen and behind-the-scenes footage recorded in the virtual and bubble rehearsal process with TMA this last year.  Newly commissioned solo dance films offer striking and intimate portraits of the individual dancers.  Each solo was developed virtually under the direction of TMA director Erin Carlisle Norton and culminated within various outdoor spaces to reflect the dancer’s key concept, production following COVID-19 safety protocols.  The virtual event LONELAND rises out of a year of isolation with shuttered dance studios and venues, each dancer emerging to share her powerful voice.

Featuring: Artistic Director Erin Carlisle Norton and company dancers Aria Roach, Ashley Peters, Bethany Chang, Caitlin Bailey, Indigo Sparks, and Zoe Kaplan with guest artist and visual arts collaborator gwen charles.
