Mairéad Filigate speaks on her experience with Danny Grossman Dance Company. From 2003-08 I was…
Show week has arrived and the air is bristling with excitement. I always think it’s such a crazy phenomenon – how there is so much to get done before a show but somehow, SOMEHOW, no matter how many tasks and challenges, everything has a way of falling into place at the exact moment that it needs to. Which is usually the very last moment! There are a lot of elements to work in this week before opening night but so far so smooth!
This afternoon we met Erin who has tirelessly worked to create our beautiful music and soundscape in record time. She is as lovely as her music. Her partner too! Today we worked through sounds levels and with our new environment of luminous sculptures.
On Friday Meredith and I stayed for a sneak peak of Yvonne’s new solo. It is touching and dark and funny. Lovely.
And here I am on the eve of our dress rehearsal, the clock about to strike midnight and time for rest. Tomorrow is a big day for all of us; the final constructing, polishing, preparation. And then the bringing of the final work to the audience. The beautiful, magical place where time suspends and we find ourselves together in a unique experience in time and space that will never be recreated again in quite the same way. It’s a special thing.
