Lumiere Brothers compete at The A.W.A.R.D. Show! San Francisco on Jan 12

The time has come for us to pull out all the stops…

We are competing in The A.W.A.R.D. Show! semifinals on Wednesday, January 12th in San Francisco — a choreography competition in which the audience vote will determine who goes on to the final round.  The prize is $10,000.

Christine and Marina and I will perform an excerpt of Bring On The Lumiere! and we are spending the next 5 days crafting a perfect nugget of a piece.  In order to win, I believe the piece has to be a mix of virtuosity, humor, and smarts.  I know that Marina and Christine will blow the audience away — my main preoccupation is with the structure.  How do you build an entire journey into 10 minutes?  We have so much material at this point — it’s just a matter of selecting a few different ideas and getting them to flow naturally together.  I have to keep reminding myself to keep it simple… I tend to get carried away with too many ideas.  The audience doesn’t need to know who the characters are based on, but I want them to care, and laugh, and be moved, and not want it to be over while at the same time feel some sort of resolution.
