This project was another iteration of our dance-painting spectacle, this time done with a professional dancer. The music is the Assassin's Tango, from the movie Mr & Mrs Smith. Unfortunately, the female dancer had a last minute conflict, so this is a one-man tango. Working with local youth from Dayton, OH, we choreographed a dance where paint was poured and shot from above on the dancer below. Later we will turn the spatters and spills from this project into a finished wall and floor painting. The piece is at once a dance, a performance, a painting and an installation.
