This excerpt is the finale of Striding Lion’s Remember the...(Alamo), an evening length multimedia dance theater promenade experience created in collaboration with Striding Lion’s company members and collaborators. This video document was made without a live audience.
During Striding Lion Performance Group's non-traditional viewing experiences, audiences move through the installed performances like an art gallery - listening, watching and touching isolated moments from the past.
"The Jenkins Farm Project", choreographed by Artistic Director Annie Beserra, transforms the real stories of a North Carolina farming family into an interactive performance that questions the meaning of home, family, memory, and mental illness against the crumbling backdrop of a depression era homestead. A composite video component of home movies, interviews, and historical images serves as a background to the dynamic integration of dance and theater playing within, against, and around an original bluegrass-blues-hymn-folk score.
