Autobiographica – 2011

For its 35th Anniversary Season, Battery Dance Company took a step forward in the artistic development of its second generation of choreographers.

Framed by two short sections by Jonathan Hollander are short works by each member of the then current Company – Bafana Solomon Matea, Carmen Nicole, Robin Cantrell, Sean Scantlebury and Mira Cook — with unifying video and light design by Barry Steele and all but 1 section set to a commissioned score by Polarity/1.  The concept behind the work was to reveal the strong individualistic artistic personalities of each member of the Company while, through the ensemble performances, illustrating the harmony and teamwork that exists amongst them.
