The Beginning Is Near

It was great fun to see old friends from Columbia Dance – Eowyn Barrett and Brent Luebbert – dancing with Lane Hunter and Bodyvox alumni in Lane Hunter’s "The Beginning is Near" on December 1 at the Wonder Ballroom in Portland.

Lane’s choreography in "Dear Mr. Rorschach" is staged with a multimedia piece that looks like it could have been made with a Wacom tablet by an artist that paints inkblots on a stage-wide canvas. I liked his integration of visual art with dance in several imaginative works presented. After the show Eowyn told me about filming in my old neighborhood near McMenamin’s Kennedy School.

A review by Catherine Thomas in a special to the Oregonian on Oregon Live covers it well http://www.oregonlive.com/performance/index.ssf/2007/12/dance_review_lane_hunters_exci.html

And keep checking http://www.bodyvox.com/ for their new works too. Meanwhile, back in Vancouver, WA our friends at Columbia Dance are about to launch the 2007 Nutcracker (http://www.coldance.org/season.html) and we plan to see many old friends again at the performance held at the Vancouver School of Arts and Academics.
