Se7en Paintings (A Story In Performance)
A performance that brings seven paintings from the well received Revival series to life. The Seven Paintings will inspire seven sets including Music, Dance and Pantomime performance. Each set will simulate the compositional and symbolic elements of a Painting. At the beginning of each set, the choreographed performance will echo the composition’s design rhythm and Primary colors. The flow of each set will stress a pattern from slow cadence to a throbbing up-tempo. The actions thru each set are conveyed thru dance and pantomime to the end, where it freezes to match the respective Painting. The Music is exclusively Yoruba/ Niyabengi drums. Using large projection of the paintings as a backdrop, the dancers will bring to life the movements of each painting thru the use of pantomime (Telling a story without words, by means of bodily movement, gesture and facial expression), choreographed dance movement and drumming to narrate the story of ambition and redemption. Each successive painting will advance the narrative through linking the music, the movements, and the pageantry of bold primary colors. The projection screen will then change to create the setting or backdrop for each dance sequence. The drums and tambourines will provide the dialogue and the dramatic turns. There are twelve members in the drum ensemble. Twelve vocalists make up the tambourine chorus, which will provide vocal percussion, expressed thru moans, chants, hymnal incantations, call and response that will convey the drama of the ceremonies essential to the story.
