chance

September 07, 2007 - September 29, 2007

Overview

Chance is the latest project by Jane Jerardi - a new video-dance series and public art project that considers the luck of being in the ‘right place at the right time.' Focusing on everyday coincidences that go mostly unnoticed, but create beautiful relationships between diverse people, these eerie and beautiful dance videos will appear projected on the outside of buildings in downtown DC throughout the month of September. The idea of chance will permeate the way it is presented, with audiences happening upon the projected videos by chance, bringing startling and beautiful art to everyday places.

Chance originated with a residency about dance improvisation and video at the School for Arts in Learning, a public charter school in DC, with a small group of 5th and 6th graders. Following this, Jane developed a set of video shorts—filming in unlikely locations including an old ballroom and city park benches with Brian Buck and Ginger Wagg.

Direction - Jane Jerardi; Videography - Fernando Ortega, Michael Wichita; Performance - Brian Buck, Jane Jerardi, Ginger Wagg.
