Gatsby Redux, The Covid Sessions
Gatsby Redux, is a full-length site specific work inspired by The Great Gatsby. The full length work is filled with love triangles, intimate dance, waves of movement and a beautiful ensemble with the audience following along in picturesque and unique locations. They are truly immersed in Gatsby’s world. It’s the 1920’s in the 2020’s.
Due to Covid, all bookings have been postponed until Spring 2021, and we continue to accept future bookings. MeMT has continued to create work that will ultimately become part of Gatsby Redux. Here is our first socially distanced new choreography!

While our Mixed eMotion family has been sheltering-at-home, we decided to have a little fun of our own. We put together this video project for our family to share with all of you. We invited not only our performers, but everyone who works with MeMT to participate in the project. We challenged 25 of our dancers and production team (including our graphic designer, producers, composers, videographer, photographer, Social Media and Marketing Director, Executive Director and Artistic Director) to create 15 seconds of movement connected to those who performed before them and then “Tag” the next performer and so on. Along with being a lot of fun to create, the resulting video created connectedness in spite of social distancing. We know that art will endure in spite of the many challenges it may face.
Shot in Arles, France in July 2017 at the Alyscamp Cemetery
