Voguing Study

For those who’ve been following my entries about voguing and are interested in learning more about the form…please join Archie Burnett and Benny Ninja at Peridance for class.  They continue to move me beyond words.

Collective Unconscious

This year, I’ve been in the process of excavating imagery from Vaudeville and silent clown materials.  During this process, it has been inspiring to witness the many cultural associations, past to the present from these eras.

I am currently reviving a duet of Buster Keaton dancing with himself from The Playhouse. Costume designer, Andy Jordan and I have been working to re-create the Keaton double in original dress.  Recently, Andy came upon the John Galliano Spring 2011 show – a mash up of Keaton and Chaplin imagery.

To see Dick Tracy-esque, leisure suits packed on a Keaton base and punk rock Chaplin, chimney sweepers – with white face, black eyeliner – in one glance, moves me through decades of history. Read the rest of this entry »

Voguing dream

I seem to be having more dreams about voguing than any other kind of dancing in my life so far.  Now, I’ve decided to begin to catalog and record these dreams in a journal.

3-13-10:

Last night in the mountains out west – with tumbling clouds, jagged mountain peak, outlines in the horizon-line – a voguer is approaching as weather tumbling in. Approaching with menace – fever. He appears like a cut-out in the sky. Moves like molten lava, liquid lightning. Arms bolting. Fierce and razor sharp edges. Blade-like liquefying into the metal they arose from.

He is a liquid electric bolt, streaking across space, with jaw tight and eyes penetrating.

Whipping the air into tight unbroken lines, so fast they are bending, folding, collapsing.

At speeds too fast to detect.

Vogue lighting

Electricity

Ice breaking

A tangle of lines, bending

The sky going up in flames behind the pace of lines.
