Saturday I photographed a dance performance created by Lauren Simpson, one of our neighbors daughter. Also, Lauren’s younger sister Ellie, 9, was in one of the ten pieces. The program was designed and planned to be performed around Valentine’s Day with love at the common thread.
The program began by asking the audience to go outside The Packing House Center for the Arts in north Denver. Then the dancers came out dressed as brides and grooms piles into a car and drove down the street and danced their way back.
The building is a former meat packing plant near the stockyards and it’s still in an industrial neighborhood. Lauren used the neighborhood as the back drop pushing both the dancers and the audience to connect with the location such as biker’s private club below the art center.
