The Pillow Project Presents
: A dance told in slivers of light
on the canvas of the body in the dark
SATURDAY & SUNDAY
DECEMBER 7 & 8
8p | $10-$15 tickets at the door
The Pillow Project presents their world premiere of NOW:PLAYING, a full length dance work lit entirely through an original approach to theatrical lighting by utilizing projection aimed from the floor and across the stage. This hour-long performance, complete with original score composed by long-time collaborator PJ Roduta, “paints the music onto the movement” with projected light. The dance creates illusions out of bodies in motion, who seemingly appear from nowhere and disappear back into darkness.
NOW:PLAYING is the definition of when and how improvisation happens. It is the performers who literally press ‘Play’ in unison to initiate the precisely timed video projection they will play in this theatrical announcement of The Pillow Project's first feature length performance to ever occur in a theater in the company's fifteen-year history.
Through the their unique choreographic direction, The Pillow Project plays in a present-tense Postmodern-Jazz.
