Solo: Orient and Occident

©Bita Bell

Inspired by Arvo Pärt’s Orient and Occident.

Roman Mosaic Patterns

Persian Tile Patterns

Spatial Pattern:

1st showing – 20 September

Class Feedback:
The military walks worked well against the music chosen.
Think about adding more variations on the arms and perhaps similar variations for lower body.
The phrase on the center seemed disjunct to the beginning.
The boxing of the space worked well the first time but the reverse needs rethinking.
Try to merge the center phrase with militaristic walks somehow.
Play more with symmetry.

2nd showing – 22 September

Class Feedback:
Experiment again with the military walks from the first showing. Perhaps don’t sit back down!

Wexner Center for the Arts Showing – 23 September

Full Solo, in class showing – 29 September

Class Feedback:

Cohesive from floor to walking . Organically driven
Ritualistic for the repetition and spacing.
Looks like something very important was being said. A Tragic story.
Setting up a Place of worship.
Hair and gender stood up.
The change of arms and their transitions were not clear and as smooth
Perhaps project the tiles on the floor.
Spatial development to nail some moments and phrasing.
Balances of extremes , relationship in throwing vs the stillness
Asymmetry; Ying and yang. Maybe go a bit improvisational.
Showcase all the variables.
