(Reposted from the SINecdoche Dance Blog at www.sinecdochedance.blogspot.com. I am a longtime member of this company, which is showing work this weekend in New York.)
It’s finally arrived – it’s show week! The dancers have all started to feel it the last few nights as we’ve tried on costume pieces, warmed up and cooled down, refined our synchronous movements, and stood under lights. It’s been a real treat to watch Greenwich House, a true Village institution, transform this week into a gorgeous performance space under the skillful supervision of our rockin’ lighting designer and tech friends. And with some help from some talented photographers.
As we’ve been in residence over the past many many months, we’ve experience GHMS in all of its extremes. In the coldest parts of Winter we layered our clothes, wore thick socks, warmed up for ages, and stood by the heaters to keep ourselves from shivering. Now that it’s Summer we’re sweating as much as ever. Here are some photos from tonight’s tech rehearsal – our last before our videographer comes tomorrow to capture footage of our dress rehearsal. I was able to duck out and take several candids on my Blackberry. Enjoy!
