Donald Sales On SpaceWednesday, June 16, 2010
Here goes my best shot. Firstly when I'm approached there are certain things I HAVE to know. One of those things is the setting/mood of the environment. I create accordingly. When I think in terms of space, it's not limited to the stage only but the space offstage as well. The whole entire environment is the stage when I'm creating. So we could either say the space isn't small at all or we could say it's very small if we are to compare that isolated building called the Legion to the rest of BC. With my piece Oops Sorry Lol Sh*t I knew the atmosphere would be very casual, relaxed and fun and wanted to compliment it with something humorous. I experimented with isolating most of the dance on the faces rather than what we usually use as tools for dance. In this space I hope the performers Makaila Wallace and Connor Gnam take away how Small equals Big. I hope you enjoy.
