Uptown Underground OC
On Saturday, October 11th KCRW headed south to Orange County for Uptown Underground OC -- a special night of music, art and dance on the plaza at the Orange County Performing Arts Center.
KCRW DJ Jason Bentley offered up a mix of urban beats and hypnotic rhythms in a live DJ set that served as the soundtrack to David Michalek's outdoor art installation Slow Dancing -- larger-than-life, hyper-slow-motion video portraits of famous dancers from around the world, projected onto the east façade of the Center’s Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall above the community plaza.
Slow Dancing is a series of 43 portraits projected on the smooth limestone façade of the concert hall, revealing each dancer's technique and expression. This fascinating portrayal of human movement challenges the limits of perception while highlighting dance as poetry in motion. The dancers include today's foremost modern and ballet artists, krump artist Lil C, Bill T Jones and many others.
Hear Jason's interview with David Michalek from Thursday, October 9.
