Dance collaboration with Jane Jerardi
Gala Theatre Tivoli Washington DC USA
22 October 2005


The improvisatory work of D.C.-based performer, choreographer, and artist Jane Jerardi is characterized by weighted, whole-body action and a distinct vocabulary built on movement and gesture. She draws inspiration from everything in the world around her including music, visual arts, the written word, and such abstract themes as time. As part of Washington Performing Arts Society’s 40th Anniversary Season, Jerardi presented the world premiere of her latest experimental work at the GALA-Tivoli Theatre. Jerardi’s choreography used video of fast-paced D.C. life as a backdrop for her exploration of the tension associated with society’s ongoing quest for “free time.”

The soundtrack presented an image of movement and speed within the frame of the piece.
