“Soaked”
Illuminus Festival 2014
Oct. 25
500 Harrison Ave.
in the BSC Pool

Zoe Dance was selected as one of the finalists in the first ever Illuminus Festival in Boston. The bold, new festival is going to take place in and around 500 Harrison Ave. in Boston on Oct. 25. We are honored to be a part in a very fitting (and very exciting) opportunity to showcase our work alongside many other top-notch projection artists.

Our new piece, entitled “Soaked” will integrate underwater live video streaming from inside the pool at the Boston Sports Club’s pool on Harrison Ave. Audience members will watch from the windows to inside the pool deck as the performers immerse themselves in the water and on the pool deck playing out fantasies and surreal dreamscapes of the live streaming (from under the water) and pre-recorded images.

The Illuminus Festival was able to secure ll the “stuff” to make this piece a reality.  The festival is unable at this time to secure the necessary funds to pay the people.

So we are reaching out to YOU!

this played out within 50 minutes to allow for a “night out” experience for the audience (i.e. dinner, dancing, etc.)

abandon

(Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center, September 29 +30)
Choreoraphy: Callie Chapman Korn
Performers: Sarah Ackley, Tamara Butts-Sullivan, Ivan Korn, Jon Peck + Mehrin Heuston

“…centers on the shift from physical awareness to introspection. As children, we revel in the body. As adults, we might find ourselves in a whole host of eccentric mental loop statements. Sound familiar?
Certainly some of that is going to be messy territory, and portions of Korn’s dance reflect that confusion…
Danced with striking engagement by Korn along with company members Sarah Ackley, Tamara Butts-Sullivan, Ivan Korn and Jon Peck, the clarity vacillates from scene to scene.” – The Boston Herald

Choreography: Callie Chapman
Performers: Ashley Williams, Jon Peck, Ivan Korn, Andrea Cheatham

 

” five dancers made their way slowly around a large pool of water in which they would eventually be baptized and redeemed, except for Korn, who sort of dissolves into the water by the finish.

The live choreography is a variation of the filmed version, which runs simultaneously. Everything spirals unto itself, and by the conclusion the viewer feels as if he, too, has been pulled into the scenario and purified.” – The Boston Herald

 

adoration

Adoration of the Moon

(Dance Complex, June 3+4)
Choreography: Ivan Korn
Performers: Andrea Cheatham, Ivan Korn + Tamara Butts Sullivan

“…Korn’s beautifully crafted trio “Adoration of the Moon” (his dances boast tight structure, clearly related to his background as a composer) ” – The Boston Herald

 

 

casiCasi una Fantasia

(Dance Complex, June 3+4)
Choreography/Performance: Callie Chapman + Ivan Korn

“The opening work “Casi una Fantasia” was an ironic duet in binary form, sort of a honeymoon night gone sour. With her long hair and compelling features, Chapman has a stunning Pre-Raphaelite appearance. She can easily play the predator, though. In a white wedding dress with red petticoat underneath and a garish rose in her hair, she flung Korn around, sat on him, anything to rouse him out of his drunken stupor. Halfway through the roles reversed. ” – The Boston Herald

Rootless Cypresses

(Choreographers Group, Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center, Jan. 9+10)
Choreography: Callie Chapman

“…Chapman Korn, whose fluid trio “Rootless Cypresses” stood out for its captivating erotic undercurrent.
The scenario gives an impression of the young and the restless dancing out themes from Jean-Paul Sartre’s “No Exit” in the courtyard of the Taj Mahal, all of it seamlessly constructed.” – The Boston Herald
