Rob & Jame's update:
Last week I got together with my friend, and fellow dancer, Aaron Gregory (http://www.aaronleogregory.com/). I was looking for movement that was inspired by the displays of different birds without the interpretation being too literal. For example, how do you convey a battle for territory on the lek? We began by watching videos of the mating displays of a wide range of birds while playing New Dorp. New York by SBTRKT. Then the fun was underway as the dancing began!
I can’t wait to get some studio time in the new year with a full complement of dancers. Until then here’s a snippet of the choreography.
