Love Form(s): Works in Progress

I will be showing original works featuring myself, Suzy Myre, Allegra Bautista, and Lydia Davis. The soluet (solo/duet) with myself and Suzy will allow the audience to choose our costumes and what song we will each rework the material to as a solo in the moment. The duet featuring Lydia and Allegra will give the audience the choice of seeing it reworked in the moment as a trio, with Suzy jumping in with the soluet material, or seeing it as a duet reworked by the dancers to a song of their choice. In between the duet original and choice versions will be a restaging of my "Cycles 2" choreography.

These works were inspired by the love and strength that I admire in each of the artists and what they inspire in me. The soluet with Suzy is from her badass self-love and strength, the duet with Lydia and Allegra is from their quiet strength from loving others and something greater than themselves, and the Cycles 2 solo from my love of Billie Holiday and how much her life, both personal and professional, always inspires and motivates me.

Thank you to Joe Landini for this opportunity and my dancers for such an enjoyable creation process.
