A HOMAGE TO RODIN is a dance commission from the Friends of the Rodin Museum. The project was to create a work based on the undaunting subject matter, the Rodin's sculptures. The dance was to be performed outside in the garden, across from the fountains, facing the reknown Gates of Hell. The plan was to present the dancework and culminate the outside performance with an audience participation in front of the Gates of Hell. Rain intervened. We were fortunate to perform inside, alongside of the actual works of arts. The atmosphere was electric. The audience and performers spellbound to be so close to the master. We had to exert extreme caution and were the first dance troupe ever granted permission to perform inside the museum. Music performed live and composed by Daniel Dorff from the Haddonfield Symphony. The project took place on October 6, 1998 with no additional performances.
