‘Framework’ at MOCA
The museum was packed with eager art lovers waiting to see ‘Framework’, a performance by French ballet dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied. Lucky for us we made it into the packed performance just in time. The lights were dimmed as we quietly made our way with the crowd into the largest gallery. We passed Warhol’s ‘Rorschach 1984′ larger than life and looking both beautiful and menacing in the low lighting.
A solo flutist began to plays an eerie, beautiful tune while Benjamin Millepied and Amanda Wells danced in a pool of light, throwing shadows on the paintings of Mark Bradford.
It was hard to breath, or even move, standing so close to the dancers. I was completely entranced by their movement. Then the music stopped, the spell was broken, and the gallery was ours to explore.
I only wish I had brought a better camera.
