Segiuti (To continue on)

May 16th, 2008

D20 6941 Segiuti (To continue on) I was in New York City a couple weeks ago to shoot a dance concert. This is the first of several photos I’ll be posting from that concert. The choreographer is Dario Vaccaro, a very talented dancer and choreographer who I met at Lois Greenfield’s studio in December. The name of the dance is the subject of this post, Segiuti. That’s Dario in the photo along with Heidi L. Kershaw, another very talented dancer.

The performance was at the Dicapo Theater on the east side of Manhattan. I’ve delayed this post because I was waiting to hear from Dario. Turns out he had taken off for Puerto Rico right after the concert and did not have internet access there. He tells me his company, the Dario Vaccaro Dance Project, will probably be doing a lot of performing in Puerto Rico in the future.

Whatever he does and wherever he goes, I’m confident Dario will be very successful in the world of dance. His talent is amazing.

I’ll post more photos from the concert soon. For now, here are a few words from the program about the meaning of this dance:

“Seguiti reveals the moments when change becomes a necessity. The dancers disengage themselves from reality to unveil the lonely truth of desire.”

Life continues to be very busy. This week I had the great pleasure to work with Unbearable Lightness and RJ Berry when they both came here for two days of shooting. One of those days involved an “oh dark thirty” drive across the state to shoot at dawn at one of my favorite locations…one of the most beautiful locations in Ohio. I’ll share something from that shoot soon.

This evening I’ll be attending the rehearsal for the wedding I’m photographing tomorrow. Then I’ll run in to Dayton for an opening of a show where some of my work is hanging. Wedding tomorrow, Sunday back to Athens to watch the lighting rehearsal for another dance concert, then Monday back there to shoot the concert. I might get to catch my breath then for a day or two.

And, one more technical comment. The Sto-Fen flash diffuser for a Nikon SB-25 flash will fit perfectly on a Vivitar 283. So I’m all set with strobes for the wedding. The 283 will be the primary flash with the new SB-600 as a backup. I may put the SB-600 on and use its TTL exposure mode for the reception photos…or not…
