Performing in a Socially Distanced World
Our special friends Brandon Lawrence Principal BRB and choreographer Ruth Brill have been busy as ever with their latest collaboration that has culminated in a beautiful film set among the spires and catacombs of Oxford. It traces the journey from the innocence of childhood, to the turbulence of youth, to the emergence of the fully formed man.
Set to the uplifting music of Carol Jones, the film is part of the Chrysalis project, a film series by Hannah Schneider in collaboration with Oxford Alternative Orchestra and the Center for Ballet and the Arts at New York University. The project features the work of choreographers in six different countries, with footage shot on location melded with footage of the orchestra shot in the UK to provide a blueprint for how performance might be possible in a time of social distancing.
You can watch the film below or on this link and if you watch closely you will also see some of the planet friendly clothing collection that Brandon designed with dansez 😀
