Special Thanks to Southern Crushed Concrete for allowing us to film on-site, and ensuring the safety of the performers and crew.
From the Choreographer:
The challenge of creating 'Tetsujin' was always how to live up to this music in the choreography; how to be at various times epic, elegant, furious, or dream-like. The music guided the movement, the placement of dancers within the architecture, and the overall direction and ideas expressed.
We were also influenced by the Japanese cult film 'Tetsuo-The Iron Man' by Shinya Tsukamoto, which explores the relationship between people and technology, and the threat of losing one's humanity and becoming a machine.
Our company is based in Houston's East End, which is dominated by industrial yards and businesses. But rather than feeling swallowed by the cold metal and concrete around us, we feel empowered.
From the Filmmaker:
Tetsujin was to be pretty, accessible, and decidedly -not- creepy. The idea was: "we can do one little piece a year that doesn't offend anyone. It wouldn't kill us." So it goes.
Born out of a love for quiet, abandoned places and the night sky ablaze by gas refineries- Tetsujin
was filmed on Buffalo Bayou in Houston and Pasadena, tx.
