Gesture III: One Great Turning
Shinique Smith with KAIROS Dance Theater
Commissioned by The Rose Kennedy Greenway
“Working with DeAnna and KAIROS Dance Theater was like a meeting of kindred spirits. She understood what I was trying to achieve in my video and we worked well together to manifest beautiful art. I admire and respect KAIROS’ intuitively crafted works and their ability to translate invisible forces into movement.”
“KAIROS pushes the limits of the physical body and draws viewers in with their mesmerizing repetitious and rhythmic arrangements. I knew KAIROS’ innovative dance-making techniques would be the perfect complement to Shinique Smith’s style of working.”-Lucas Cowan, Curator, Rose Kennedy Greenway
Gesture III: One Great Turning, a performance video made collaboratively with internationally acclaimed visual artist Shinique Smith, was commissioned by The Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy. The video was filmed during the summer of 2015 in front of Smith’s 70-by-76 foot mural Seven Moon Junction temporarily installed at Boston’s Dewey Square Park.
Gesture III: One Great Turning has been featured in galleries and art festivals both nationally and internationally, including South Korea’s Busan Biennale 2016.
