Shale Forming ~ Live event documentation OSU DANCE MFA students perform at Urban Arts Space.
Concept and Direction by Katherine G. Moore
Choreography and Performance by Katherine G. Moore and Kathryn Logan
Sound Design by Bita Bell
Installation by Jacklyn Brickman
Created from outdoor improvisational investigation along several of Columbus’s natural waterways, Shale Forming considers the layers of intermediary space between bodies and the natural world. Via a set design that is altered and transformed by the performers’ bodies, as well as captured sound that has been manipulated by sound designer Bita Bell, the work suggests movement through imaginary worlds that intersect with both urban and natural environments. The work includes an installation by artist Jacklyn Brickman on the ceiling of the gallery.
