Olive Prince Dance shows new work this weekend
Posted April 28th, 2015
Olive Prince, leader of Olive Prince Dance
, is showing an in-progess version of her new full length dance, Of our remnants
, Thursday April 30–Saturday May 2 this weekend at the Iron Factory (118 Fountain Street, Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia).
Olive spent three months as a resident artist at The Iron Factory building this new dance, which was inspired by a passage in Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. “When I choreograph, I often start with very specific visual images, objects, set pieces, or costuming and create ways to reconfigure their meaning throughout the choreography,” Olive explains. To get ready for the showing, the company is “presently installing a set including empty frames, a lamp collage, and visual art that will become the backdrop for our movement explorations.”
An excerpt from Of our remnants
was performed last month at the Nice and Fresh
series at Cliveden, and it was spectacular, so make sure you go! (I believe there will be beverages to enjoy as well!)
