HOVER FOR DESIGN STATEMENT
Beats on Beats is a highly energetic and fun piece working with several different rhythmic syncopations. Hip Hop, Jazz, and African Dance are strong choreographic inspirations for the piece. The piece explores the musicality and dynamics of movement using various beats, rhythms, and sound. Lighting matched the energy of the piece by marrying itself to the strong rhythmic beats of the music. Strong and bold gestures of light paired with the dynamic and exact cuing structure were used match the rhythmic energy of the dancers.
