Orange Grove Dance is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the purposes of Orange Grove Dance must be made payable to Fractured Atlas and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

‘THE ARCHETYPES’ is an original film written, choreographed and produced by Colette Krogol and Matthew Reeves (Artistic Directors of Orange Grove Dance).


ABOUT THE PROJECT:

‘THE ARCHETYPES’ is an exciting new film here at Orange Grove Dance, founded in deep research through choreography, cinematography and mythology. Using Greek mythological archetypes and insights from the research of Joseph Campbell as a base for inspiration we are creating modern mythologies within an abstract narrative that live and breathe in the fabric of today’s human psyche. Joseph Campbell said "Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths.”  'THE ARCHETYPES' is an exploration into the private dreams that make up our new public myths today.  Aside from Colette and Matt building new choreography and writing an original screenplay, this project has an incredible team of designers, filmmakers and performers on board ready to make this vision a reality.


WHY DANCE AND FILM:

“Dance on film is always an affirmation of the moving storyteller we have inside our bodies.  It reminds us to listen to the body. The body speaks deeply to who we are as people and often times it speaks with more honesty and clarity than the mouth.  For this reason alone we need more dance on film. It is one of the few ways we can keep our ancestral truths relevant in a modern society.”

  Matt Reeves-Orange Grove Dance

ABOUT ORANGE GROVE DANCE:

Orange Grove Dance, founded in 2007 by Colette Krogol and Matthew Reeves, is built on the ideals of bringing dance, art, film, and movement to all communities, large and small.

"Our mission is to bring world-class art to working class people.  In order to achieve our objective, we find it absolutely necessary to immerse ourselves in the communities in which we create our work. We create dance based on our physical, emotional and mental environments."

Artistic Directors, Colette Krogol and Matt Reeves both hold Bachelors of Fine Arts in Dance from the University of Florida and upon graduating they collectively began the vision and creation of Orange Grove Dance; moving themselves and the company to New York City. They have performed and toured nationally and internationally with many prestigious companies, such as Neta Dance Company, Dendy Dance Theater, Diavolo, David Dorfman, and The National Yiddish Theatre.  Recently they were Guest Artists in Israel at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance where they taught technique and set new repertory. Of the summer 2013, they were Associate Choreographers of Mark Dendy Projects for Lincoln Center Out of Doors festival in which they organized and performed with 80 dancers in site-specific venues all throughout Lincoln Center’s Hearst Plaza.  Colette and Matt have taught workshops and master classes as well as set repertory across the United States and Europe. In 2011 they were Directors of Swamp Dance Fest, a four-week dance festival in the US. Some of their most fond memories come from being Artist in Residence in Nikiski, Alaska in 2008, and in Rauma, Finland as well as at Skriðuklaustur in East Iceland in 2012.  In Rauma, Colette and Matt created their first Dance-U-Mentary™ film, Rauma in Motion, which after premiering in Finland last spring to rave reviews was also screened as part of the DANCE:FILM 13 festival in Edinburgh, 2014 CINEDANS-Dance on Screen Festival in Amsterdam and the 2014 Loikka Dance Film Festival in Helsinki. In Iceland they began research and response work on Icelandic sagas and folklore. They became so fascinated and inspired with the way stories and myths permeated the landscape and lifestyle of Iceland that they created their own Icelandic saga, a dance film ELta BLöð, which premiered in Iceland in August 2013. Matt and Colette are back living and working in New York City bringing the worlds of dance and film together once again with their newest film production THE ARCHETYPES.
