A solo of many layers

Solo #1 from Alaine Handa on Vimeo.

This solo is a mixture of different cultures. Korean traditional dance are mixed into the modern dance vocabulary. The costume that my dancer, Yoonjung Choi will be wearing is a Indonesian inspired Batik wrap around skirt. The spoken word in the music is from David C. Pollock and Ruth Van Reken's book Third Culture Kids. There is also a Swedish poem by Edith Södergran. She is also dancing to French accordian music from the soundtrack of Amelie.

Rehearsal # 2

This is a very rough idea that we created in our second rehearsal.
The two dancers in this video are Emily Mercer and Anna Louise Herzog. We ended up creating this short little duet after writing reflections after reading two poems by TCKs and quotes from TCKs.
