Point of Departure >>dance notation > art> dance>
Ipswich Moving Company premiers Point of Departure February 8-10th at Ipswich Moving Company Studio. Noted visual artist, Peggy Badenhausen, created a series of Monotypes influenced by Dance Notation (Labanotation). These Monotypes became the inspiration for Ipswich Moving Company’s latest new dances entitled, Point of Departure. Artistic Director/Choreographer, Janet Taisey Craft and Badenhausen began their collaboration during the summer exploring the relationships between dance notation, Badenhausen’s Monotypes and the Company’s choreographic process.
The Company has created a collection of seven dances performed by Jessie Boudreau, Jenny Carlson, Danielle DiVito, and Tabitha Rodger. Point of Departure explores the elements and structure of dance notation and responds directly to the visual art images drawn from Badenhausen’s monotypes. Audiences will have the opportunity to see the interplay between the art images and the dances throughout the performance.
