A fragment of Edits at The Wapping Project

On Friday and Saturday choreographer Lea Anderson and two dancers from her all male company The Featherstonehaughs, were at The Wapping Poject as part of the celebration. Ryen Perkins-Gangnes and In Pang Oci performed a stunning fragment from the 2010 show Edits.

I drew during some the rehearsals for this show last year, it takes as it’s starting point the rhythm and phrasing of film editing in feature films. (see August 21st and August 23rd). The costumes are by Sandy Powell, music by Steve Blake and Will Saunders and light and stage design by Simon Corder. Lea Anderson first came to The Wapping Project 17 years ago with a site specific performance performed by her all female dance company, The Cholmondelys, in the building before it’s refurbishment.

Before and after the duet a lively Rock n’ Roll class was in progress on the dance floor, the dance teacher even managed to persuade me to abandon drawing them and join in!
