Live Arts Festival TV: “I DESIRE” Video Responses

Posted September 3rd, 2010

Bob Wuss, the artistic director of the West Philly-based production group The Shakedown Project, writes in with this video response to Olive Prince‘s piece I DESIRE. The dance premieres at the 2010 Live Arts Festival next week as a part of 8: eight choreographers/eight new works.

“I was challenged by Olive to come up with a video using postcards that we have gathered over the past few months with people’s desires written or drawn on these cards. I had traveled to parks around the city asking people what their deepest desire was and what we found was incredibly insightful and inspiring.”

8: eight choreographers/eight new works kicks of September 7. Olive Prince is paired with Shavon Norris on September 9 at 8:00 pm, and September 12 at 3:00 pm. Live Arts Studio, 919 North 5th Street, Northern Liberties. $25.
