Aloft 3D

2012

“Aloft” is a collaboration between producer/director Kate Duhamel, choreographer Yuri Zhukov, and Golden Gate 3D to create an original 3D dance video. Dancers Garen Scribner, Lonnie Weeks, Sean Bennett, Madison Keesler, Alex Jenkins, and Jordan Drew dance a modern ballet above the Golden Gate Bridge. The piece was inspired by the America’s Cup sailboat races which will be hosted in San Francisco in 2013, and a desire to express the beauty and grace of the fastest sailboats on Earth through dance.

“Kate Duhamel’s 3-minute Aloft, by San Francisco choreographer Yuri Zhukov, featuring a half-dozen dancers in white and beige frolicking at Marin Headlands overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge to Steve Reich’s Four Sections I, was the perfect kickoff. ¬†Sunshine, That Bridge, puffy clouds, three women, three men, grand jetes, intense rhythmicity – you don’t need more.” ¬†Janice Berman, San Francisco Classical Voice
