Owen/Cox

Dance Group

promotional material

I enjoy pursuing work with local dance companies

and the Owen/Cox dance company is always a joy

to work with.

 

Chromatic Collaborations is a recent work. I created

a logotype full of refracting light, for this occasion.

 

I dreamt of these binaculors and finally found them

at an antique store. (Typically I spend the entire

budget on photostyling props.) These especiallly

beautiful binoculars are an indexical reference to

an expedition. Frabjous is a cryptic reference to the

combined word, fabulous and joyous, as spoken by

the mad hatter. (This show carries an Alice in

Wonderland theme as well.) The lines represent a

sort of maze to symbolize the quest and non-linear

story the dancers will tell. Additionally, the word

"expedition" is feeling antsy and ready to move on.

For the Nutcracker poster, I returned to the analog

method of hand-cut type. I was thinking of DADA to

describe the non-traditional methods of Owen/Cox.

The Nutcracker type is cracking up to represent the

explosive evening of music and dance.
