Flux: Dance Film
This movement-based video is an exploration on falling -the moment of weightlessness when gravity retracts us from above ground and pulls us to the earth. The film is a collaboration between choreographer/musician Rob Kitsos (Vancouver BC) and film maker/musician Daniel Wientraub (New York). Both artists produced and recorded the sound track for the video. This work will be completed in December 2013 to be distributed internationally. Premiere TBA

Con-found is an experiment in real-time composition. The performers all learned and developed a finite set of material based on losing things and the frustration of confusion. In performance, the dancers and actors choose what parts to perform in the moment- based on what the composition calls for. This work was performed in the Choreographic Series at EDAM- Vancouver BC.

Casual English : World Dance Alliance, Vancouver
This duet is a collaboration between Vancouver based dance artists Rob Kitsos and Kim Stevenson. The process began in 2012 exploring pure movement generation, a retracing and detailing of phrases, and a deconstruction of timing. Both artists are drawn to a detailing of complex movement that reflects the idiosyncratic rhythmic nature of a verbal casual conversation. Performed at the Wold Dance Alliance in Vancouver BC- 2013.
