Chair Spectacle // 2012
- Seattle Center2012
Modern Dance Performance by Pat Graney Company with Batt & Lear Design
As homage to the beautifully designed grounds at Seattle Center, The Chair Spectacle, choreographed by Pat Graney with architectural design by Batt and Lear Design/Build, will feature 300-500 people dancing in, on and around red chairs. Based on Rudolph Laban’s large-scale ‘Movement Choirs’ which featured hundreds of people moving in unison, this work will be an amazing half-hour spectacle. Performers will range in age from 10-80, drawing from our culturally rich and diverse Seattle area population. Don’t miss the opening day performances on April 21!
Pat Graney Company's Chair Spectacle at the Seattle Center
OBSERVE THE SPECTACLE! The Pat Graney Company invites you to experience The Chair Spectacle, part of the opening celebration of The Next 50 Festival honoring the anniversary of the 1962 World’s Fair at Seattle Center. The Chair Spectacle will feature one hundred people dressed in white moving in unison on and around white chairs in the International Fountain, forming a “movement choir” accompanied by actual recorded sounds from the 1962 World’s Fair. There will be two performances – one at the opening ceremony on April 21st, 4:30pm, and one at the closing ceremony in October.
