Gifts for the Void
(premiere)

Split bill with CoreDance Contemporary
City Center Studios
New York, NY

Gifts for the Void is a dance propelled by the idea of displacement: in movement, social context, and between bodies in space. Thrown into the realm of visual interest, Gifts plays with contrast, alignment, and communal effort. An original score by Michael Wall includes an intertwining of breath and instrumental substructure, creating a Lord of the Flies-type tension between dancers, sound, and environment. Gifts for the Void is a constantly shifting arena, moving fluidly between alliances and ideas.

Letters (premiere)

Under Exposed
Dixon Place
New York, NY

Letters is an episodic story told in reverse – the unraveling of an attachment between two people, invoking movement that spans from stark and simple to sweeping and highly physical. Inspired by war letters and a Southern upbringing, it explores the dying art of the love letter, and the vulnerability a letter can evoke that would not be a normal liberty in physical social settings. It portrays two people whose passions and sentiment that would be spilled onto a page, made visible.

Gibney Showdown

Duet with Marion is a solo exploration of femininity as it resides within the confidence/fire and fragility of the female form, working through gesture to create and disprove the everywoman. This piece is designed to perform intimately as theater in the round.

Stranger story (premiere)

CollabFest
Triskelion Arts
Brooklyn, NY

Stranger story touches upon the fleeting conversation between strangers. It deals in the comfort and awkwardness of spilling your soul into the unknown and understanding that upon departure, that moment will be lost as if it never existed. Assuming that a stranger will remain so after parting, some can find solace in confiding intimate hopes and thoughts whose evidences will disappear along with a face. The work highlights two dancers who have met in the studio as strangers but have been expected to instantly open their souls to one another. Original score by Sean McVerry.

99 (premiere)

chashama 2014 Summer Performance Series
The Historic Falchi Building
Long Island City, NY

99 is an exploration on perspective for both the audience and performer. Set within individual glass cases half filled (or half empty?) with balloons, each dancer finds themselves in a slight predicament. What if the world around you was obscured and obstructed to the immediate focus, yet uninhibited where sight is not a luxury? The viewer will witness the performer evolve from half a body into a whole being.

*99 was made possible by residency support from chashama
