Dance-A-Rama 2008

Earth Song - Giving Thanks to the Earth. Performed at Dance-A-Rama 2008.On May 4 Treve participated in Dance-A-Rama, an annual event in which dancers give free performances in an open-studio environment. Treve’s participation involves setting up his panoramic camera in the middle of the performance space and then having dancers move in front of the camera as it scans the scene. This year Treve’s piece was titled Earth Song – Giving thanks for the Earth. Members of the audience were invited to form a circle around the performance space and to hold banners with text based on Francis of Assisi’s Canticle of the Sun. One of the dancers, Jim Jim Beatty, read periodically from the banners during the course of the performance. Treve uses a collection of bells and sound makers to communicate with the dancers, providing a sense of rhythm. Two images are posted in the dance gallery on this website. We Thank dancers Jim Beatty, Ann Swigart, Aileen Kim and Terrain for their help and for the many outstanding dance performances that went on throughout Dance-A-Rama.
