Charles Atlas / Rashaun Mitchell / Silas Riener

 

Choreographic duo Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener present the fruit of their years-long collaboration with pioneering video artist (and fellow Merce Cunningham Dance Company alumnus) Charles Atlas, a fearlessly inventive exploration of the body’s three dimensions, in two parts.

The evening opens with a transportive 3D dance film, split into six vividly rendered chapters. Fusing experimental cinematography with otherworldly set and costume design, each section presents a saturated choreographic vision where movement and mise-en-scène seamlessly come together. After a highly orchestrated set transformation, six dancers in gauzy mesh jumpsuits take the stage, carving out crisp, playful, intricate patterns behind a mammoth translucent scrim. Captured by Steadicam and manipulated by Atlas as it unfolds, their hypnotic movement is projected back onto itself as a haunting digital specter, set to a commissioned sound score performed live by Thomas Arsenault (Mas Ysa).
