UNPOLISHED MOVEMENT PORTRAITS
A series conceived and produced by Grace Copeland.
These “unpolished movement portraits” are a celebration of the non-artistic parts of artists’ lives. Dancers and theatermakers can become so passionate about chasing our dreams that we forget to celebrate the parts of ourselves that make us who we are as individuals. The process: we meet, we chat, I give a prompt, we record a one minute(ish) iPhone voice memo, they listen to it several times, and then they improv to their own thoughts. Only the story or emotion they’ve shared informs their movement - no music, no choreography, no rehearsal. Both the soundbite and the video are done in only one or two takes. These are snapshots of our friends’ hearts, the humanity under the artistry.
