We just finished our Orlando Fringe Festival 2019 run of shows!
Look for updates, more thank you’s for our supporters, videos from the show and much more.
Most of all THANK YOU to all who donated to the project, those who came to the shows and for all of the love that we received from far and wide!
We are already planning on touring this show around the US and beyond so stay in touch and look for all kinds of action from us as we solidify concepts and organize a new movement company!
For now, we send all of our love and creative energy out to the world from the stages of making dances!
CoCo Loupe Dances has been collaboratively fashioning a wild movement adventure with professional dance artists Mina Estrada (Baton Rouge, LA) and Amiti Perry (Dallas, TX) via virtual platforms for several months now, alongside local dancer Stacey Decknick and musician/composer Michael Boyko.
Through long hours of experimenting with improvisational modes, philosophical banter, highly structured gestural choreography to 80s pop songs, and the pain of middle-aged adults managing the complexities of modern day technology, they have devised a dance theatre experience that feels like a dream inside of a music video, folded into a story about the glory and calamity of moving forward, falling backward, traveling inward, finding pause, dancing hard, singing with the body, while longing to feel your feet on solid ground.
From One Foot to the Other is an evening of controlled falling. Like walking but more like traipsing. Like running while swaying or like dancing while being interviewed.
The work invites us to indulge in physical concepts such as This and That, Steps for the Ages, The Politics of Dancing, Shaking It Up and Time Sounding.
The process of meaning-making at a distance via virtual platforms comes together in choreographed and improvisational modules.
It’s not linear.
It’s not logical.
It’s a notion.
And it’s located in the shifts between places of balance.
Also, lip syncing.
