Part of the DANCE MOViES Commission, this installation officially premieres on April 6, and will be followed by an open reception and panel discussion with all commissioned artists. -- Lecoq trained actor, principal clown for Cirque du Soleil, and contemporary artist Colin Gee presents In the First Place…, a multi-layered dance film installation. The project, filmed in Rome, reframes Hypnerotomachia Poliphili (The Strife of Love in a Dream), an Italian pastoral romance published in 1499. In the First Place… applies a relationship between memory and location by referencing a mnemonic technique called “Memory Palace” that uses architectural spaces to organize and remember information.
