Autumn 2018

A new solo premiere and choreography for a “plane”

This summer/autumn I had the great fortune of developing a new solo, waiting for humanity,  with Ana Lopes Aréchiga which made its NM premiere at SHIFT DANCE | FESTIVAL 2018.  waiting for humanity is one section of a larger work currently in progress with Mrs. Lopes Aréchiga.  Stay tuned. . .

In other news, some higher glimmer in our landscape of flat by Cara Scarmack made it’s premiere and runs through November 3!  It was a joyous process to work with the glimmer team and Buran Theatre to bring this strange and glorious work to life.  Check out the program HERE!  And peruse some beautiful images here!
