OF MOVING COLORS PRODUCTIONS - Dancers celebrate as Phase 3 provides local restaurants freedom to increase capacity to 75% for the first time since the COVID-19 shut down in March. More than 20 solo dancers perform in front of select establishments to create one fun short film set to the sounds of Baton Rouge’s own Michael Foster Project.
Of Moving Colors and members of the Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre produce a festive marketing video called Leap Appetit. The video showcases some of our city’s favorite restaurants. The idea began shortly after the city went into quarantine. Garland Goodwin Wilson, OMC’s Artistic Director, and Emilie Alton, owner of Bistro Byronz, discussed the opportunities of how two very different but linked industries could promote art and commerce. That’s when the fun started!
OMC dancers, along with members of the Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre, perform short vignettes in front of various restaurants using their signs as the stage backdrop. OMC uses this footage to celebrate that Baton Rouge’s culinary delights are ready for the taking!
What next? GET IN ON THE ACTION and join your community dancers in supporting the local restaurant industry. Eat out, order takeaway or simply go to www.ofmovingcolors.org/leap-appetit to donate to your favorite restaurant.
