We have been busy in the studio developing movement material and generating as much as we can for the past month. When I begin working on something new I ask the dancers to write and speak from their own experience and with specific prompts that then are used to develop movement phrases. We always create more movement than we need, play with structures that may work or may just work in my brain but not in practice. I'm thankful to have a group of dancer collaborators who are willing to play and laugh as we go through the process and hone in on the real work. This past Wednesday in rehearsal I began the process of refining material and developing a more formal structure for the work. Just before getting to this point of refining I often feel temporarily stuck - and always hope it's just temporary! Thankfully we pushed through this Wednesday and an exciting new work is taking shape! I'm really excited to get back into the studio tomorrow for some solo work and on Wednesday to finish the piece and further refine it. I can't wait to share it with you.
As always, we really need your support to make this a success - we have a little under three weeks to raise almost $5,000.00 to cover SOME of our costs. Please consider donating to this work to help elevate our voices and take some of the financial strain off so work like this will continue to be possible. We firmly believe in what we do and really want to share that with a wider audience. Your tax deductible financial contribution allows that to happen. No amount is too small! Please make your donation here:
Thank you and we hope to see you soon!
