Robotech Dance Essay

“Robotech Dance”
On Friday, March 21st, 2014 I went to Chandler Center for the Arts to watch SIRO-A perform the show called “The EDM Generation”. There was two parts which were both very mind blowing and entertaining. The venue looked the same as my last concert show as it was at the same place with red velvet seats that were very comfortable. The concert was sold out and they had to use the 2nd story level so probably around 500+ seats. The stage size was probably 1/4 less of a football field, SIRO-A had a lot of open space to move around from flips to sliding across the stage. There were over 19 dances on the program which was in two parts 10 in the first part and then a 20 minute ...view middle of the document...

The beat had a kind of hip hop feel to it and with the beat created he did flips and slides across the floor which was really cool. He did very good aerials and back flips in a row without stopping which amazed everyone. Then he would pull behind the screen part of a drum which the ball shadow on the screen would “hit” the drum base and make a loud drop. Everything was really set and performed on point and at the precise time or it would 100% show he messed up. The lights were mainly centered, with the costume being all black with these futuristic looking glasses. The total work on the piece you could tell had lots of time spent to make sure everything was on point with using the technology sorts in the background. This reminded me when I did a piece of kind of free styling to my hip hop teachers music as I would have to hit every beat by ear and move with certain sounds. Overall the piece honestly was performed really well as with the special effects in the background I couldn’t really think of anything to change or to make it work for me.
The next piece is called “Human Layer” which was right after “Shadow Baller” the transition into this piece was really quick as it was only a new person and they used the same kind of screen on stage. As the title pretty much explains different layers of human you would probably think there was more than one person performing, wrong. There was again only one person performing for this certain piece. The screen turned into one of that heat sensor where if it was your body your whole body would be on the screen due to your heat and when you moved it would make a ripple effect following your body movement’s heat. So with that being said his performance was all in the area where the screen went. He has some music played which was not mentioned in the program most likely a self made techno beat. The choreography was a lot of sliding and waving similar to other pieces that were shown in the concert. He did a lot of sliding to the right and left with a wave going through his arm which on the screen made a really cool ripple effect like a worm going towards which ever direction. The control of the body was really well done it seemed as if he had water flowing in his body and he would be able to control is with his hands pushing it through his body using it as a illusion towards us. I thought the alignment was really well done and technique was also very precise. One simple mistake would ruin the ripple effect on the screen so he would have to move perfectly. The lights were above him shining straight onto him and costume was the same as the other performers, all black with futuristic type of glasses. Total work on this I feel he did spend a lot of time and practiced his moves on this. Comparing this, would be kind of when I had to do a partner dance and I was the master puppeteer and I had to control my friend playing as the puppet waving and moving around on point as if a little mistake it would seem like I wasn’t...
