The writer negatively focuses on the performances aspects of costumes, camera angles and many things that would have been not evident and in significant if it were performed on a live stage.

Hazy View with a False Step-Nina Levy

 

Page Number:

Date of Article:

2014 Perth Festival

 

Summary:

The article, presented to us by Nina Levy in The West Australian is featuring Beijing Dance Theatre and its performance of Haze at the 2014 Perth Festival in Perth, Australia. It is critiqued by the writer and is negatively stated that it was a dissatisfactory performance yet was interesting. "The concept behind Haze is innately fabulous bit, in this case, the result doesn't quite hit the mark".

The work Haze was performed on a stage of mattresses and consisted of contemporary and floor work. The article states that "The sinking of the dancers feet decreased visibility still further". The work is said to focus on the catastrophic environmental and economical effects of pollution in the modern world in which we live in.

 

Is it Publicity for a performance?

I would say noir is not publicity nor advertising, in answer to this question because it is negatively critiquing the performance and giving it few positive aspects and commendations. Though this point it is still featuring the specific work of The Beijing Dance Theatre, Haze.

 

What Kind of Performance?

This performance was done by a company (company season) but was presented as a part of the Perth Festival 2014. It was performed at His Majesties Theatre, Perth.

 

Is the Article and Editorial?

There is no breaking news or fascinating/ exciting news included in this article but the fact that Beijing Dance Theatre is performing in Perth as a part of The Perth Festival 2014.

 

Is there a Picture? What is it?

The picture I've attached to my scoop is the picture that accompanied the article 'Hazy view a false step'. It is of 3 female dancers in grey leotards and leggings (presumed to suggest the profuse amount of pollution) in a deep lean back position with an extended leg.

This text is extending on the ways of Pilobolus Dance Company and how it has blossomed over the years. Author Julie Mullins positively responds to all works of Pilobolus and mentions the company's origins, its appearances on shows and its times of touring (last year).

"Pilobolus continually explores and grows — not only through the creation of three or four new works a year, but by developing new movement vocabulary annually, based on the innate abilities of the dancers themselves. This approach sheds light on why dance training isn’t essential for Pilobolus performers."- Julie Mullins, this quote demonstrates this high quality of performers that this company produces and maintains throughout its time.

No, This article is exploring the ways of Pilobolus Dance Company.

 

What Kind of Performance?

The picture accompanying the text is an abstract piece that shows the dancers in a foetal position all crowded together in a small vicinity. This represents the bacterial colony of which the dance company is name after.
