Gluttony (Double Points 7) – Ty Boomershine & Dries Verhoeven [Video]

December 4, 2009

This dance is about gluttony referring to the seven deadly sins. This is the first time I have really seen a public dance created as art and not as a performance. The concept and direction comes from Dries Verhoeven and the choreography, performance as well as the concept is by Ty Boomershine.


‘Did you film the choreography and then learn it backwards? It flows very nicely, I don’t know what it looks like forwards.’

Ty Boomershine: ‘Actually I just reversed (retrograded) it without the use of a camera. I just figured it out in the studio. The whole thing is filmed forward then played in reverse half time. So I’m also dancing double time, which was the hardest part.’

How do you feel about gluttony and supermarkets?

Are the Seven Deadly Sins universal and timeless or are they merely myths that are accessible and relatable to today’s problems?

What is your favorite part about this choreography? Did you have any idea that the choreography was danced in retrograde?

Do you ever dance to the music playing at Wal-Mart?
