About the show:
Reservoir is an evening of new works by emerging choreographer/performer/film-maker Jessie Smith. This debut production of Smiths company, Dead Bird Movement, features the premiere of two dance films Rivet/Rivulet and In Memory of Corrosion in addition to a live dance/music performance entitled Craning.
Rivet/Rivulet and In Memory of Corrosion are Jessie Smiths most recent dance cinema works. They feature performances by Seattle dance veterans Ellie Sandstrom and Pam Gregory as well as Smith. In these films, Smith places her choreography in raw, industrial settings. She explores the ways in which dance is affected by harsh footing, trying weather, and other uncontrollable influences. Guerilla projections of these films will be shown in the streets of Seattle the month leading up to the theatrical premiere.
Craning, the live dance/music piece, sprang from explorations where Smith jumped, perched and tossed herself upon percussionist Pol Rosenthal while he played a bass drum strapped to his chest. This theme developed into an aggressive, acrobatic partnering performance between dancers and instrument wielding musicians. The musicians, Jherek Bischoff, Samantha Boshnack, Beth Fleenor, Robb Kunz, and Pol Rosental, juggle the act of partnering while simultaneously playing the score. Tamin Totzke and Smith weave dance solos and duets between their interactions with the musicians. Their movement sweeps through waves of momentum abruptly interrupted in a style of released-attack.
Reservoir is made possible by grants from Artist Trust and The Mayors Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
