Lunge Dance Collective is a blossoming young dance collective that promotes collaboration between artists of many different mediums. Founded by Billy Bell, in March of 2010, the goal was to expose young artists to each other, in hopes of creating a stronger network for them to aid one another and start their budding careers. What resulted was so much more when Lunge became not only an artistic escape for the dancers, but also a family and a group of artists who truly value the love for art, and each other. Originating with 19 artists: 1 choreographer, 1 lighting designer, 1 photographer, and 16 dancers, Lunge has now expanded across North America and has had the privilege to cross paths with over 60 artists, including 2 choreographers, 3 lighting designers, 6 photographers, 2 ﬁlm directors, 1 partnering dance company, and 45 dancers, each of to whom Lunge Dance Collective owes all of its success and artistic merit. The collective has had performances in Florida, New York, Colorado, Nevada, California, London (ON), and Texas. Dance Spirit Magazine calls Lunge a “unique and eye-popping talent”. Having over 60 members and only being in existence for the past 2 years, Lunge has been awarded the Rudolph A. Frank Prize for the Emerging Arts, done multiple residencies including DanceNYC Silo, and collaborated with Westside Dance Project, NMRKT.com, and Bryn Cohn and Artists. Lunge continues to be one of the most promising emerging contemporary dance companies in the U.S., as its audience and list of collaborating artists grows and expands. With innovative ideas and mass opportunity, Lunge Dance Collective believes that anything is possible and strives to create boundary pushing art that is both marketable and unique.
Project12: The Thinker
Subject: Cris Huggins
Project12 Time: 4hrs
Project52 Time: 66hrs
For Project12 I wanted to play with the idea of ideas. How the bloom and expand and how the fad away from us all in the blink of the eye. I didn't want to get too literal with the idea of "The Thinker" but I enjoyed what Cris brought to this statue-like character.
