Aline David

Two things: First one is news that I’m working with my fellow cohort member Lindsey Griffith to create videos, maintain, and update the unofficially official Instagram and YouTube channel for Towson’s MFA Theatre program.  You will notice that not much information has been added to these places just yet, but a blank page is always a great place to start.  Stay tuned for some really great updates from Brecht, Gertrude Stein, and the rest of the cohort!

Second thing is a video of site-specific choreography by Aline David.  As I continue to think about site in my own work, I’ve noticed that many examples I’ve found have documented performances specifically for video.  This one below is no exception as it utilizes jump cuts and helps situate the audience firmly in a viewing area.  Although the intent to video tape is clear, it still feels as though I’ve walked in on something a bit more private, almost as though she’s not performing for the audience but for the space itself.
