This Act of Three Collisions


Choreographed by Alex Ketley

Commissioned By: BNC Colorado as part of their 21st Century National Choreography Competition (2008)

Music: Tab@JMB

Danced by: members of BNC Colorado

Alex Ketley was selected as one of three finalists for BNC Colorado’s inaugural 21st Century National Choreography Competition. He decided to do a work where he collided three seemingly disparate elements. The first is the dance that he made, the second was a piece of music composed by Tar@JMB and the third was an edit of footage taken from a harsh contemporary Mexican film. The combination of the three each juxtaposed against each other created an odd tension. The work was also an experiment seeing if he could work with both dance and video in a commissioning structure.
