And another lovely review of STILL at the NOW Festival:
"... brilliant technicians dancing out their deepest fears, longings and nocturnal impulses with virtuosity and finesse... Gamson's movement tonally shifts from lyrical adagios to fierce, almost violent cutting and twisting, limbs acting as propellers to change shapes and moods in an instant. The effect is a thrilling sensory experience, where movement, light and music come together to tell a story in a non-linear way, but with the understanding that the story indeed lives on, deep beneath the surface."

"...another impressive and already polished work... The movement, the lighting, the effortless-seeming flow and the quality of veiled mystery are all beautifully handled."
READ THE WHOLE REVIEW HERE: Mark Swed, LA Times
"In Rosanna Gamson/World Wide's STILL, four men and two women create an intricately beautiful dance of the psyche as light shifts, shadows move, and bodies intertwine with exquisite sophistication. ...a very sensual and quite unforgettable experience."

"...a visually exciting piece of intricately woven dance moving in and out of stunning light and shadow, creating mystery and intrigue as the artists whirl, connect and separate, creating a piece that is sometimes ethereal, sometimes kinetic."

STILL goes to the NOW Festival at REDCAT!
RGWW is included in the opening weekend of REDCAT's NEW ORIGINAL WORKS FESTIVAL, July 24th-26th. More details and tickets etc. coming soon.
The New Original Works Festival is a three-week interdisciplinary program of a variety of short works and some longer projects in their Los Angeles premieres. The Festival takes place in July and August and artists are given development support through rehearsal space, technical assistance, access to equipment and an honorarium. Los Angeles-based projects are selected through a proposal process by a panel of arts professionals, with an emphasis on new projects in development and/or early career artists.
Thank you Everybody who turned up for the MAYDAY Peek & Bash! It was a great party and extra special thank you to our guest artists.
