Thank you Helene. Blue Lapis Light specializes in setting works in non-stage settings. Their Lighting Designer, Jason Amato, contributed a great deal to the look of this piece. This particular piece was not that interesting (choreography wise) without the lighting, primarily because the setup/space/building did not allow for much variation in movement.

One of their most ambitious projects was in a 4 storey building that will be demolished soon, in a piece appropriately titled "Requiem". Images from that show can be viewed at http://insightphotography.smugmug.com/dance. It has more variety of lighting and space use.

As to the proximity to the dancers in the Love of China. The background was not aesthetic (it was in a hotel Ballroom). So it worked out well to be close to the dancers. The better dancers were placed in the front, which made for better photos.
