Title: Fighting Dreams
Jeremy Soule – First Light
The first movement will start with men and they will open with what is meant to be a moving piece. I am not good at describing dances but essentially, they will be going to war. Imagine they just received letters stating their next mission and the movement explores their emotions (eg. leaving family etc). Going to war in this dance, symbolizes entering the dance world, leaving behind everything (friendships etc) to be great at the art form.
This is the pas de deux (maybe three couples). This movement is all about personal growth and struggles at war. This movement epitomizes dance for me and it is creating these beautiful lines, lifts, shapes and emotions with the body.
The third movement will open with the men returning from war. This closing movement will feature floor work rooted in the Horton technique.
