Terrain Trailer from Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company on Vimeo.
Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company produced Terrain in 2016. Filmed in southern Spain, Terrain depicts a body, that of choreographer Daniel Gwirtzman, in a mountainous landscape. Stripped of a recognizable narrative, the choreography investigates gesture and form, transforming the body into a panorama of identities.
Director/Choreographer/Performer/Editor: Daniel Gwirtzman
Videographer/Photographer: Rosa Llinás
Music: Kevin MacLeod, Jeff Story
Production: Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company, AADK Spain
World Premiere: Fenòmens, Barcelona, November 18, 2016
Terrain was created during the Residency program of AADK Spain at Centro Negra in Blanca, Spain.
The Party, choreographed by Gwirtzman, is a theatrical, narrative dance with scripted characters depicting a group of friends as they navigate the social dynamics of a gathering. The overarching concept explores the tipping point when intimacy crosses into inappropriate behavior and violence, peeking into the darker side of relationships and the pressures, dangers and abuses that can arise in a social context. Set to a score of celebrated pop, rock and disco, The Party is a humorously-musical and entertaining piece, ironic, unpredictable and visually striking. Commissioned by the Kennesaw State University Dance Company (Kennesaw, GA) the work features a set designed by Gwirtzman, costumes by Jill Peterson and Gwirtzman, and a robust cast of twelve KSU dance majors. The sixteen-minute dance will be expanded into a program-length one in 2017 for Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company.
