Fairy tales on a virtual stage

From Vivid Motion

WESTBROOK – Vivid Motion is putting its VivMo Shorts: Fairy Tales and Folklore on the virtual stage through June 11.

The dance troupe’s choreographers have taken stories and turned them into short dance vignettes; each with its own quirky and innovative style!

From contemporary ballet to bubblegum pop, with a little modern, jazz, hip-hop and sneaker ballet thrown in; there’s something for everyone.

Some classic Mother Goose, a new spin on Hansel and Gretel, and a journey through The Woods are among the tales being told through dance this spring. Each short dance is its own small story filmed in a variety of locations and streamed to the comfort of your home.

Since Vivid Motioni started this whole project back in February, dancers been working hard to present a dance show in a safe, socially distant way. The troupe had 2 separate casts to allow more people to dance while still staying at least 6′ apart. The entire time, masks adorned their faces.

Each tale was rehearsed for 3 weeks and then filmed on the 4th week at St. Lawrence Arts and Baxter Woods in Portland Maine – this is dance for film; not simply a dance video.
