A fantastical landscape of capture and escape, of animal instincts and human desires, and surreal situations, with an original score and projections.
Right now, the dancers and I are in rehearsal for a new show that we're super excited to perform! This will be our seventh evening-length show in NYC, where we've been doing shows since 2003. Our work in progress, Deer, To Me, is a piece for eight dancers, three video projectors (two of them vintage: 16mm and 8mm), and an original score. The landscape that we're seeking to create with both movement and sound is one of depth, intrigue, and density- not unlike a dark forest where the line between fiction and reality is blurred.
We'll be performing this work March 18-21 in Brooklyn, NY, at our favorite local theater space, Triskelion Arts. Our program is graciously sponsored for the sixth year by our friends and neighbors at the Brooklyn Brewery.
We're raising money for this show to pay for dancers' fees, costumes, and composer fees, as well as cover costs for rehearsal space. We're making new dance work because we're passionate about it, and look forward to bringing our latest to life.
