Dance (4) 8 features eight dance artists from Karen Peterson and Dancers who have different physical and developmental abilities as well as different ages and dance training. This improvisational structure brings a community of dancers together through the use of visual and verbal directives as well as mentoring and support during the performance. The structure is rather simple and the shadows had another dimension to give the dance layers.
The music is also improvised by "Temporal Anomaly" and the two musicians, Vicki Richards on violin and Robert Thomas Jr on percussion, take their cues from the dancers' visual inspiration and change of colors on the screen.
Choreography: Karen Peterson
