learning new repertory in Rioult

Today, we finished up our last day of learning Harvest, a revival that is significant in Pascal Rioult’s work as it is his first piece and was performed by the Martha Graham Dance Company about 15 years ago.

Here are me, Michael and Robert watching the video giving a little sickle and smile to make the process of learning new steps a little more fun…. Uh yes, I am being a dorky dancer and yes, we dancers still use the primitive video to learn choreography. Laban notation, the only written form of dance notation doesn’t really show you the quality which is often more important than the technical aspect.
