No Rehearsal today! Rehearsal 6/16 - YES!

Hello there!

Sorry to load up your inbox with confusing messages but there is a critical mass of attendance at next week's rehearsal and a dancer needing to rest her injured ankle so that she can perform tonight.  In other words, I won't be having an open rehearsal today.  No one here has RSVP'd for today but just in case anyone was planning on dropping by. . . it's officially canceled!

Have a great Sunday!

-Shannon

Open Rehearsal Next two Sundays

REPORTING BACK FROM PHILADELPHIA

Dear supporters,

Yesterday, I got back to Seattle after three weeks away. Upon coming home from the east coast I got caught up in an unforeseen emergency and was delayed in sending out the Philadelphia report. My apologies!  Ideally, I would have been sending out little updates from the road, but it turned out to be harder to get a chunk of time with a solid internet connection than one might imagine in 2013.  Both in Philly and NYC, I kept ending up in places (apartments and cafes) where the internet was kaput.  C'est la vie.

!!!!!  PARDON THIS INTERRUPTION  !!!!!

PLEASE SEND ME YOUR ADDRESS IF YOU SIGNED UP FOR THE $25 AND HIGHER REWARD SO I CAN SEND YOU YOUR POSTCARDS AND WHAT NOT!  Internet be damned, letter and postcard writing persevered.

Okay, continuing on. . .

I hit the ground in Newark, New Jersey just as March 20th was starting (about 12:30am) and had a long trek into the city.

While I was doing a work in progress showing that night in Brooklyn (as part of Movement Research’s Open Performance series), Meredith, David, and Rosa were landing in Philly. Mimi, Jeff and Adam and I all made our way to Philadelphia by bus early the next morning.

WHAT HAPPENED NEXT:

ITS SNOWING IN PHILLY, WTF?

Adam, Meredith and I shoot our “Dances Made to Order film” in the cold abandoned subway

Screening of Seattle, NYC, and Philly dance films at International House

And so. . . It pretty much goes on in this condensed fashion with trying to shoot more footage in Grand Central (highlight of a dozen French students joining us running through the station with our arms outstretched) until our Screening at Videology in Brooklyn on Wednesday.

Thursday morning I reunited with two of my colleagues in the Deborah Hay Solo practice.  Later that day, I sent Adam off on the plane and finally took a breath to try to write some things down. 

Since this update is already text heavy, I'll save some of my deeper reflections for later and instead share some more photos.  But first, I will say this:  Thank you.  Truly. And deeply.  Something shifted for me through this condensed experience of traveling, making, directing, performing, and sharing as a dance artist.  To say it in brief, this tour illuminated where I am at, what I am working on, what I care about, how lucky I am, who I'm in community with, what is at stake, and the work there is to do. 

I thank you for giving me this and for allowing me to continue to work with this amazing group of artists.

My New work in progress at Open Performance in Brooklyn.
