White Oaks, a short film by the Shua Group and filmmaker Diana Quiñones Rivera was created during a New Dance Alliance 2008 residency at White Oak through the support of the Howard Gilman Foundation. The film will be presented at the Performance Mix Festival on February 24 and 25 at Joyce SoHo.
In White Oaks a white clad couple appears in a gothic, sanitized, recreational Southern landscape. Through a subtle play with movement and stillness, they frame scenes which suggest larger narratives of site: a canoe and turquoise fountain, a orange ball rocking in royal green bowling alley, and two bodies disappearing under a shimmering pool.
Shua Group (www.shuagroup.org) is a performance group focused on movement projects which interact with living scenes. 2008 projects included Giant Place Detail, at World Financial Center (NYC) and Public Moves Federal Hill hosted by American Visionary Arts Museum, Baltimore. Shua Group has collaborated with filmaker Diana Quiñones Rivera on several projects, included Crowded Action and Absorb. These short films can be seen at shuagroup.org. Ms. Rivera’s documentary of Shua Group’s site-specific work Giant Place Detail will premier in the fall 2009.
The 2008 White Oak Residency also included artists Cynthia Hopkins, Victoria Libertore, Megan Metcalf, Ryan Migge and facilitated by Karen Bernard.
