We just want to wish you Happy Holidays and all the best in the New Year! We are so grateful for your support, encouragement and patronage during this, our first official year as a company in New York City.
For those of you who didn't know, SPINE was based in London, England for 4 years, Los Angeles for 4 years, and we disbanded for a year during 2007-2008. Our regrouping started with a film commission and things took off from there. This year we premiered a new film at the Berkshire Fringe, exhibited a photo project at 3rd Ward, produced a live music and video event at Monkey Town, and produced a new work written by Allen Norvick, our newest member, which was presented at Speakeasy Stories this fall. Slated for 2010 are a web comedy series, 2 new films, a video exhibit, and an adaptation of a play. Our website has been updated, and we have a blog and a Facebook fanpage so you can keep up with it all.Minus our year long hiatus, the core group of SPINE has been working together for 10 years. To mark our anniversary we're posting some "best of the decade" lists to our blog; a little thing we like to do at the SPINE house during family dinners that often result in drunken after-dinner brawls. Feel free to chime in and share some of your picks.
In what has become a yearly tradition, we used the holidays as an excuse to do an impromptu photo shoot based around a theme. As you can see, this year we chose "Domestic Bliss". Click the photos to embiggen. Thanks to Alvaro Gonzales, photographer extraordinaire.
We leave you with 2 pieces of rehearsal footage in their very nascent stages; The first, a video story-board for Kristen's new piece, and the very beginning of movement ideas for a duet Cory is working on. Become a Facebook Fan or follow our blog to check the progress of, and give commentary on, our newest works.Take care,
Allen, Brent, Cory & Kristen
