With a graceful prowess, Mr. Page has since shifted his focus to curating his own work while enriching young creatives. Establishing Edgar L. Page: Feel the Movement in June of 2018, he utilizes this intersectional, multigenerational movement arts initiative to explore the universal pursuits of love and happiness in an era marked by the continual morphing of intimacy due to technology. Page has been named a Creativity Connects Fellow, a City of Denver Cultural Partner, an Imagine 2020 Grantee, and the first recipient of the Presenting Denver Audience Favorite Award resulting in being named the Artist in Residence for the 2020 Presenting Denver Dance Festival.
My creative process cultivates socially motivated work that interweaves techniques (Horton, Dunham, Graham, ballet, and Jazz), athleticism, and the Africanist Aesthetic of Cool to inform a contemporary vernacular-infused style. Reflecting upon what is happening in the world, I interrogate social issues and phenomena through lush movement tapestries. Currently, I am intrigued by society’s obsession with individuality/independence and how this leaves many seeking deeper connections. In this, my focus has become crafting multi-dimensional dance narratives about the pursuit of love and happiness in this era where intimacy continues to morph due to technology.
I enter the creative process looking at the dancers as collaborators. I shape and reshape pre-made movement phrases on them, seeking to amplify their physicality throughout the work. Open dialogue is fostered within a safe space where every voice has validity. By allowing freedom during the exploration phase, dancers are encouraged to find their authenticity within a narrative; constructing emotional landscapes that mirror reality. Negating thematic and physical abstractions, I view dancers as real people having real human experiences in real time. Thus, the emotionality inherit within each movement is utilized to underscore colliding truths with compassion, credence and awareness.
When all these elements combine, my intention is simply to foster understanding and education through the art. I guide dancers with candor and heart towards expressing their souls. At my core I’m just a kid from Detroit who wants to uplift communities through dance.
