((These are from my high school's dance company concert "Orchesis",)) by SAWYeR. I remember my first Orchesis production... in a way it's why I initially stuck with theater. (Truncated for length and PG rating in concept of me not opening the dressing room doors for the production). Cool show, cool running pin-rail, cool as a young teen in finding something of interest and a community of friends sharing a similar love in art. Beyond that, one dance set to the "I believe it's magic" song from "Gost Busters" movie made magic with me - great dancer/great dance and lighting in many ways held me to the art of preformance. This even given it was much just spinning with a shawel under old radial Century Strand fixtures with gobos in them. Art as a concept was even made back before the S-4 and moving light. Still the question comes to mind. What's Orchesis as a term and where does such a term come from? What's the history of such a name and concept as opposed to just school dance concert or production?
