CEDAR LAKE – INSTALLATION 2015 | Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet….
Once year the Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet produces one of the most exciting, if not the most exciting event in dance in NYC, the Cedar Lake Installation. The company turns its spacious studio in Chelsea into a 360 degree performance space. No seating is provided; you are encouraged to walk amongst the dancers as they are performing.
When you enter the Cedar Lake studio, the dancers, all in black walk about the room stone faced. We the audience are none existent, the weave in and around us. It is evident from the start that we have entered their world, a world where surrealism is the norm and abstraction is a manner of expression.
The dancers are wearing pleated knee length skirts with each in a black top of their own choosing. Guillame Quéau is wearing a black motorcycle jacket; Joaquim de Santana has on a see-through mesh tee-shirt while Joseph Kudra is shirtless.
There is a blend of mystery and tension. For the audience does not know what to expect…that is the brilliance of the Cedar Lake Installation 2015….you never know what to expect….
