Performance - Jordan Demetrius Lloyd: Trip Gloss

Tuesday, Nov 30, 2021



World Premiere commissioned by BAC

Brooklyn-based dance artist Jordan Demetrius Lloyd's Trip Gloss is an experiment in translation from a 3-dimensional world to a 2-dimensional screen. Layered animation captures an amalgamation of movements by six dancers drawing from a web of inner stories and imagined fantasies. A textured collage of footage unpacks how the physical postures, tones, and intentions from live performance can transpose to the digital space.

Conception and Choreography: Jordan Demetrius Lloyd

Featuring: Quaba Ernest, Wendell Gray II, Mia Martelli, Mykel Marai Naine, José Lapaz Rodriguez, and Kennedy Thomas

Filmed at Baryshnikov Arts Center
