Abstract

WECreateSpaces: Barriers explores site-specific dance filmed in an urban environment in tandem with live choreography presented on stage. The piece is the latest work by WECreate Productions and features the contributions of textile designer Robert Burton, Head of the Department of Design Innovation at Teesside University (England). The footage captured in El Paso, Texas and projected on multiple screens, accentuates the performers’ visceral reactions to this unique environment located on the border between US and Mexico. WECreateSpaces is an experimental-multidisciplinary-innovative performance that blurs the lines between dance, video, music and textile art. The work is a collaboration between choreographer/dancers Keysie Seitz Brown, Michelle Nance, Nicole Wesley (USA) textile designer Robert Burton (UK) light and scenic design, Cheri Prough DeVol (USA) video production Ana Baer. This work is part of an ongoing collaboration with WECreate Productions directors Ana Baer and Heike Salzer and was premiered during MergeX at the Harrison Theatre, SMTX on February 27, 2020
