Story of the Quarry – A Dance Project in Maine

Off to Deer Isle, Maine this weekend to work with the magical choreographer Alison Chase, the founding artistic director of Pilobolus Dance Theater who heads Apogee Arts.

Chase is staging her community dance project called Quarryography – a performance about what happens in a quarry when no one is looking. Professional dancers team with community members, a performing excavator and flying sculptures to create a unique and beautiful experience staged in a local quarry.

Choreographer and puppeteer Mia Kanazawa collaborates with her puppet and costume designs.  I’ll be filming with 2 EMU students and we’ll create a variety of pieces to document the event. Check out the 3-minute video I created in collaboration with director David Norman from Alison’s premiere of this project in 2007.
