Mel, my dear friend Maxx Passion, and I are producing an interactive performance series this weekend (June 8th & 9th) on Governors Island called #TweetDance as part of the Under One Dances project. Molly & Mendel will also be a part of the fun! It’s going to be awesome! Here’s the 411:
#Tweet Dance invites the public to direct minute-long dances performed by professional dancers! Tweet inspirations, prompts, words, phrases, etc for the dancers prior to the performances by adding the hashtag #TweetDance to your tweet! Not on twitter? Send an email to underonedancecollection (at) gmail
Immediately before performing, each dancer will be given a tweet prompt that will guide their one-minute dance. Videos of these tweet-dances will be uploaded to our Vimeo channel. Musicians and artists of all mediums can download the videos, add in their own voice, music, effects, etc, and then add their “remixed” video to our “Remix” channel.
#TweetDance will premiere at Figment on Governors Island on June 8th & 9th 2013. There will be 2 performances each day, each performance will run approximately 15 minutes:
June 8th - 2pm & 4pm
June 9th - 4pm & 5pm
At 3pm each day we’ll be performing #TweetDance inside Le Tigre Tent!
