An Ally's Attempt

part of the Womanness Concert


Choreographed and Performed by Dante Puleio
Venue: UC Irvine Experimental Performance Lab, Irvine, CA

Design Statement
An Ally's Attempt was created as part of a small concert in the celebration of Womenness. As the title of the piece suggests this dance was an attempt of two allies to emulate the female experience. Through the choreographer’s work and my lighting we told a story of one who powered through an oppressive relationship and stood strong against all odds. Utilizing the small rep rig for this concert I helped support this concept through the use of harsh shadows and dramitic transition times.
