Baba Ghanoush’s performance (me & Amyfae). I completely goofed up our choreography in the middle of Hadouni! At least I laughed about it. Overall, if we ever do this exact set again, I think we need to rework Hadouni (the second piece, after we put down the swords) to include some moments where we make better use of the whole stage, and alternate slow/fast more.
Aubergine’s performance, unedited. Eventually we’ll probably take this down and put one up with the end of the finale removed… we decided at the last minute to change how we lined up for the end of the finale, thinking that because the stage was so big, we’d all fit in the “front row”…completely forgetting to consider whether or not we’d all have *time* to get into the front row, so half the group did one thing, and half did something else when they realized it wasn’t going to work, and it was a bit…chaotic. We also seemed to have some little staging issues when we got into our “V” for the drum solo. Overall, though, I’m very pleased with the whole video and how far we’ve come together as a troupe, especially in the past year.
Also, I designed our matching costumes, and actually sewed quite a few of them. They don’t show up in a ton of detail in the video, but I’ll have more photos eventually.
Constructive feedback always welcome from my dance buddies on here.
