In the First Place...
Part of the DANCE MOViES Commission, this installation officially premieres on April 6, and will be followed by an open reception and panel discussion with all commissioned artists. -- Lecoq trained actor, principal clown for Cirque du Soleil, and contemporary artist Colin Gee presents In the First Place…, a multi-layered dance film installation. The project, filmed in Rome, reframes Hypnerotomachia Poliphili (The Strife of Love in a Dream), an Italian pastoral romance published in 1499. In the First Place… applies a relationship between memory and location by referencing a mnemonic technique called “Memory Palace” that uses architectural spaces to organize and remember information.
