bodycity has been dancing around the world this summer from remote locations for our Summer Sessions, a video project that allows all of our members, wherever they are, to dance together. Our first project was recorded on the Summer Solstice, each of us taking five minutes to great the season. The film was edited together and is premiering right now at the California International Film Festival! The video will be playing on a loop in the lobbies of the venues. Go check out the film and catch a show!
ABOUT SUMMER SESSIONS: SOLSTICE
We are at meetings, in school, sitting behind desks and closed windows. But for a moment, on the longest day of the year, with the sun at its annual apex, we gather in the center. We pause to think of sipping summer mead and washing our faces in sweet summer dew. Stretch tall to feel the tilt of the earth; jump high to float above its spin for just barely a second. In California, Belgium, Pennsylvania, Vermont, and Colorado, we danced together in the heat of summer. When we cannot dance together, we can still dance under the same sun.
