Chiaroscuro at Chesterwood
August 25 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm EDT
Qualia Dance Collective will premiere “Chiaroscuro,” which draws on art, mannerisms, and narratives of the Baroque. Through a contemporary lens, this Baroque music and movement study juxtaposes le sacré et le profane, or the sacred and common, with the contrast of light and shadow as defined by chiaroscuro.
Research and inspiration for this performance includes Remedios Varo’s Tailleur pour dames painting, thus exploring the simultaneous dichotomy and harmony between the Baroque and Surrealism. Embodying dynamic gestures of Baroque sculptures and paintings, as well as translating characteristics of Baroque art and music, such as strong diagonals, swirling action, chiaroscuro, scenes of everyday life, asymmetry, emotion, formal design, and rhythm vitality, are the inspiration for the choreography of “Chiaroscuro.”
Choreography by Fiona Scruggs.
Dancers: Veronica Bone, Jordyn Cormier, and Fiona Scruggs.
