Inspired by the movement of Artistic Director and Choreographer Kristin Alexanders two-year-old daughter and created in collaboration with New York based multimedia artist and composer John Jannone, Origin explores movement in its purest form through technology and modern dance.
To create the movement vocabulary for Origin, Annex Dance Company members spent time in the studio following Anne. Annes movement was organic, surprising, disconnected, and full of discovery, and in turn, so was our interpretation, said Alexander. Annes mannerisms and patterns are the driving force behind Alexanders choreographic process and decisions. Replicating her movement patterns lead into improvisational exploration and further developed into set movement vocabulary.
For this project, Alexander is collaborating with multimedia artist and composer John Jannone. Jannone created projected imagery and music through computational means; using computer vision software, Jannone analyzed Annes spontaneous movement gestures. The encoded gestures were transcribed and generated into images, which in turn were used to create musical structures.
