Urban Pastoral is a spontaneous outdoor dance by Chris Ferris & Dancers with 10 sculptural lights by Warren Kloner and live music by Loren Kiyoshi Dempster and Brian Shankar Adler. These hand held lights illuminate, swing, slash, and dot the landscape after sunset. Each species of firefly has its own pattern of flash and flight path. Prior to the performance dancers will randomly draw a way of moving with the lights. During the course of the performance dancers will seek out others with their pattern. The lights have a framework that is reflective of architecture enclosed in a white translucent skin. As the bodies, lights and sound bounce off the environment art comes to life in an unpredictable sensual experience. We are, with guerrilla type performances, creating a unique way to view the Urban Pastoral. Dancers involved are Leah Antonellis, Corinna Brown, Erin DeLucia-Benson, Chris Ferris, Kristina Aurelia Harris, Gianna Lafronza, Avery Lincoln, Kim Machaby, Cecly Placenti, and Diane Lynn Skerbec. Chris Ferris is the director of this improvisational work.
