VCA 2014 End of Year Dance Performance - 1

There were four programs in today's end of year performance by 1st and 2nd year students.

I was intrigued by a song footage used in the first program, 'Amoureuse'.
I've never heard of this song, but, I loved it.

Today's standout was the second show 'Stone', choreographed and directed by Rochelle Carmichael.
Her name is a familiar one for me.
Last year, she choreographed a program 'T.Issue', and that one, too, was a standout.

This year, she used two couches with wheels attached underneath it as a prop.
It was a very clever idea. Dancers were either standing on them or lying on them, moving around the stage quickly or slowly....

With hallucinatory beat sound by Zac Barracloughspectacular lighting by Bryn Cullen, costume design by Robyn Mcpherson, and high octane energy output and at the same time, very graceful movement from dancers, this was one of the best contemporary dance performances I've ever seen.
