The Eyes Have It Coco Loupe at Taking Place Columbus

The Eyes Have It

Round 2 at Taking Place Columbus.

Taking Place is a kind of homecoming for guest artist CoCo Loupe. While she currently resides in Baton Rouge, La, CoCo’s legacy from her time in Columbus can still be seen and experienced at Feverhead in Grandview.

During the rehearsal on Fishnetting/Repetition and Composition CoCo often brought up the eyes as additional actors within one’s movement, a sentiment that was also repeated throughout Peter Kyle’s instruction on Slow Tempo.

The direction of gaze implies intention

I took a moment to ask CoCo about the parallels between the two classes, and what the eyes mean to her within the context of dance.

CoCo and I have worked on many projects together. My favorite was when I asked if she would be the Sun.
It’s good to see you again.
