Chris Ferris & Dancers

Chris Ferris & Dancers premiered Proximity Of Clouds on April 30, May 1 & 2, 2010 at Joyce SoHo in NYC.† This atmospheric and moving work is choreographed by Chris Ferris and takes the sculptural sets by Warren Kloner into hand and motion.† These sculptures hang, swing, slash, glow, and illuminate creating ethereal forms, a forest of moving architecture, and corporeal presences.† Original music is performed live and recorded by Andrew Drury, Jeff Kerestes; and Loren Kiyoshi Dempster.† The dancers defining and consuming space are Katie Aggen, Erin DeLucia-Benson, Melissa Brading, Grace DiLorenzo, Dana Doggett, Haley Hauglum, Kristen Mangione, and Hannah Seidel.† Patti Gilstrapís costumes will enhance the sculptural elements of the bodies and Carrie Woodís lighting designs will create an atmosphere of color; and day and night.†
