This past Saturday I went to CCM's Dance in 3D concert, which premiered a new work called Automotive Passacaglia. The piece was choreographed by Jiang Qi and the music was written by Michael Fiday, one of my professors. (He supervised my pieces How to be a Deep Thinker in Los Angeles and part of Bullet Time.)
This was my favorite piece on the program. I don't think I've seen modern dance using toe shoes, but this added to the angular linear lines created by the choreography. (I know this now that I've taken a ballet class. It's all about the line.) Maybe there will be clips of this piece on YouTube and I can post this in the future?
In other news, the Los Angeles Ballet is now five years old. I'm sorry they weren't around when I was in LA.
