Act 1 of Midnight Violet Episode 2 is the video version of one of my favorite fire routines for live shows.
“Can We Talk” is a steady and seductive display of object manipulation with a cane and staff.
For the setting, I tried to keep things feeling private, secret, like a late night meeting to talk things over. A nearby lagoon with a small grove of trees was perfect for this clandestine union of you and I.
Since I can remember I have been an active communicator, dance is just one pathway of expression for me. Verbally, I love to converse, but words can be hard to find at times.
This act, as presented to you, involves a number of romantic themes, like knowing when to give something that feels too hot a little time to cool down, and opening pathways to communication.
You’ll have to excuse how relaxed I look, as the sound of the flames and the movements themselves are meditative to me. Fire is truly my element! Working on this video was so enjoyable… More fire projects, both simple and elaborate, to come.
