Choreographer: Melanie Aceto
Artistic Directors: Melanie Aceto and Michael Rogers
Conceived and created in collaboration with architect/designer Michael J. Rogers, Cloud utilizes over 3,000 square feet of plastic to explore dynamic form, surface environment and the perception of the human form. Choreographed by Melanie Aceto, both the movement material and the arrangement of movement structures utilize the extreme volume of plastic material to create grandeur in space, time and form. The negotiation of the material by the six dancers allows them to move on top of, underneath and with the various sizes of plastic in order to repurpose the material as set, prop, costume and barrier. Non-narrative in structure, the arrangement and transformation of events in Cloud generate images that lead the viewer through a visceral journey.
