MOVE Dance Center / Recital 2015
Working with close friends always is a completely different experience. And it is with pride (and lots of enjoyment) that we participated once more in the stage creation, creative support and production of the annual student recital show of MOVE Dance Center.
This time we (but most of all the teachers) faced an extra challenge: come up with completely new choreographies for new movies, no traditional dance or musical movies were allowed. The concept received the title “MOVE Studio’s” and took place as a guided visit of the famous ‘Aalsters Movie Studio: MOVE’.
AoE assisted in the stage design, lighting design and joined the think tank for show director Filip Van Keer, a part from that we were in charge for a whole series of background movies in the movie themes to match the choreographies on the multi screen setup.
The challenge was not only accepted but the bar was even raised by taking less obvious movies to create choreographies for, which resulted in very surprising new creations!
Discover Red Riding Hood, 12 Years A Slave, Kill Bill, Catch Me If You Can, The Secret Garden… all except the movies that were to be expected: Leslie Vermeulen even dared a challenging theme like Schindlers’ List and translated it into a breath taking piece that kept the audience in emotional shivers.
A job super achieved by the MOVE teachers.
