Temple/Fear and Desire mixes together two friends, two musical inspirations, A bunch of dancers,and some chocolate cake. Dance always intrigues me. it intrigues me, because everyone perceives something different while watching it. Temple/Fear and Desire are no exception. The choreographers for these two short pieces seem to have a plan that works. They each have created a short pieces. They combine them in the same night, and viola- have a short dance show. They talk with us, the morning after their opening night, about how they became dancers, what their choreography process is like, what comes first- the music or the dance, and what sort of inspiration really goes into it all. For anyone who wants to know how a piece of dance gets born, or how to support 2 local choreographers, and a composer by seeing their show- then check out this podcast. We have been warned that both the chocolate cake, and some champagne are present on stage. For the rest, you’ll just have to check it out yourself!
