CEC New Edge Residency Performance - Dance
The CEC/Community Education Center is proud to present the final New Edge Resident Artists performance of its 25th Anniversary Season. Nora Gibson, director of Nora Gibson Performance Project, unveils her evening length dance work entitled VESTED SOULS at the CEC where she has been a resident artist for the last nine months. The stark and beautiful work depicts "the elegant struggle of the Everyman in five vignettes." VESTED SOULS takes its passion from Gibsons personal experiences in the workplace and her view that often people are ambivalent about career and torn between work and their personal lives.
Gibson's work reflects her post-modern sensibilities and her roots in classical ballet. For this project Gibson has enlisted two collaborators, Michael Reiley McDermott and Clifford Greer, Jr. McDermott has created an original music score with a wide-ranging sound palette including classical strings and piano as well as digital and mechanized sounds and lighting designer Greer lends his expertise to sculpt just the right texture and mood for the work.
