The 48 Hour Dance Project

Backstage before the show

Last weekend I followed a team from the 48 Hour Dance Project with a video camera. I have been documenting Maria Voisin dancer and director of Salseros 828 Dance Company. The making of her 48 hour choreography project Si Se Puede is the subject of my next episode of Art Seen Asheville. Voisin randomly chose 6 dancers out of a hat (one of them fell sick so in the end there were only 5) and together they produced a Si Se Puede - a piece that combines various Latin dance forms.
The 48 Hour Dance Project was hosted by the BeBe Theatre and Asheville Contemporary Dance Theatreand this was the first time it has been attempted. Read more details about the other participating choreographers and their dances here
