THREE LADIES IN WAITING Three women dressed in white wigs prance, dance and wait, sharing whims and fantasies as they romp through a Beckett like landscape pondering meaning, beauty and identity. Why are they waiting? What are they thinking or feeling? Gotan Project's music became a partner for creating this new work. Their sound filled with hints of narratives and looping emotions became an irresistible match for the work. Collaborator Vassor-Johson's videography integrates, interfaces and introduces senses, scents and memories of the dancers. The second dance was informed by the solitude and intimacy of the site. The tall looming buildings with the sky peeping through, grated doorways and reflective windows, cobblestone streets and alley ways breathed a sense of timelessness and transported us to a place where we can pause, reflect and enjoy.
