Directed and Choreographed
by Ruth Griffin 1997-2010
Within the crafting of dance I search for the intrinsic geometry of the guiding metaphor of the work. From abstract to theatrical dance research and source work imagery and music provide the keys to the movement, music, costume, set and lighting design. Always the goal is to create a world that the audience co-imagines into being.
For Water, Earth, Air and Fire
Moments of transcendent beauty are woven through this choreography to Bartok’s Fourth String Quartet. It takes the very complex score of this String Quartet and visualizes the sound into imagery and motion. No small feat.
