Paul Taylor Dance Company senior member Michael Trusnovec stars in the latest edition of the video series #ShareTheMattress that features creative artists dancing and playing on their beds. The revered dancer is among the industry’s most talented and influential artists. He also wears briefs like few others do.
In the video, Trusnovec transforms his bed into a stage and demonstrates his agility and elegant athleticism. His video is part of an online viral campaign by contemporary dance company Keigwin + Company and choreographer Larry Keigwin to celebrate the dance company’s tenth anniversary and the return of its signature piece “Mattress Suite” to The Joyce Theater this fall.
Trusnovec’s is the sixth of ten videos that will roll out through October. The series is featured on KEIGWIN + COMPANY’s website. Viewers are encouraged to share their own videos on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or YouTube with the hashtag #ShareTheMattress.
“Mattress Suite” debuted in 2003 at the Joyce Theater in New York City. Keigwin conceived the piece in 2003 after watching dancer Nicole Wolcott jump around playfully on her bed. The pair developed choreography inspired by Wolcott’s moves and set it to popular songs and classical music. The piece was a hit with critics and audiences. KEIGWIN + COMPANY’s 10th Anniversary season runs October 29-November 3, 2013 at New York City’s Joyce Theater. “Mattress Suite” will be featured during the run. Tickets are available here.
