Happy World Ballet Day! While most stages and studios are still closed in New York City, Axons Dance Theatre has been back at it with some virtual quarantine inspired choreography. <Stalled>, the company’s first dance film and first piece featuring the entire company, plays on the physical and psychological effects of quarantine and dancing at home. As a dancer in this film I found it both challenging and exciting filming in my own space, and watching the finished product made me feel connected to my fellow company members, a sensation many artists have been sorely missing since March.
<Stalled> (watch out for the pun) was performed in a multitude of spaces, places, and styles and really gives a glimpse into each of our days in quarantine in addition to being a dance piece.
<Stalled> premieres Friday, October 30th at 8pm as part of 7MPR Themed Dance Theater-Third Midnight Virtual Halloween on Facebook Live. The livestream will be followed by a live discussion with the choreographers presenting in the show. We hope you’ll join!
