Edmond Kilpatrick On SpaceWednesday, June 16, 2010
When I made Love in an Elevator I knew it was for a small space in the Dances for a Small Stage format. I wanted to take an equally small space, an ordinary elevator, and create in it a whole different world from the one beyond its doors. A space where my dancers could embark on the epic themes of finding love, loosing love and winning it back. Where we can see deep inside them as they uncover the flower of their true selves. Where they desperately fight for that what is most precious to them. A world that, once the doors open, must inevitably dissolve.
