Neutra VDL House, Los Angeles, CA

Devotion by Madeline Hollander featuring L.A. Dance Project.

The piece features 12 dancers from LA Dance Project and an original score by composer Celia Hollander.

Six duets perform on rooftops, balconies and fountains, creating a dynamic constellation that extends throughout the Neutra VDL House. The choreography is guided by Robert Frost’s poem, “Devotion" - the dancers’ bodies articulate each letter of the poem, physically reciting the words from beginning to end.

The heart can think of no devotion
Greater than being shore to ocean -
Holding the curve of one position,
Counting an endless repetition.

-Robert Frost
