All Of A Sudden (1989)

Choreographer: Elizabeth A. Miklavcic
Music: (Video Credits)
Dancer: Elizabeth A. Miklavcic
Location: Another Language Studio, 345 West Pierpont Ave., Salt Lake City, Utah
Length: 5:33 minutes
This rehearsal was organized for the purposes of showing the Company Members the dances being worked on for the upcoming Another Language Holds A Conversation concert. Here, Elizabeth shows her completed solo for the first time to Gunild, Christopher, and Jimmy.

All of A Sudden is a dance about lost opportunity, and lost chances. About dealing with the choices one makes, which changes the direction of one's life. A life that might not be turning out as one hopes. The restrained slow motion in much of the choreography was meant to represent encountering resistance, then with force pushing through that resistance despite the sadness it creates.

The response to All of a Sudden was positive when it was performed. Another Language is glad to have this rehearsal copy, because the performance video is so dark that about half of the dance is not visible.
