As Quiet As...

In this short, moody work by the Concert Dance Company, dancers strike poses around a rushing river. The dancers merge with the surrounding landscape, echoing the curves and bends in trees and river rocks. Images of the steady motion of the river and shadows playing on rocks add to the naturalistic look and feel of the work.

This work was featured in two dance showcases produced for the "Frames of Reference" series -- "Dance in Open Spaces" and "A Place to Dance."

"Frames of Reference" was a series that began circa 1978. Half-hour shows were produced to showcase commissioned and already created works. It was around this time that the focus of the Workshop shifted, to concentrate more heavily on creating works for broadcast. During its time, "Frames of Reference" was the focus of the Workshop's national arts programming effort. The series ended circa 1983.
