My love affair with music continues. Add extraordinary contemporary composers and dancers to the mix and I'm in heaven. Some time ago, feels like just yesterday yet so much has happened since, Dancescape LA asked me to create a piece for a performance benefiting dance education.
How could I say no? Sometimes the work that comes out of giving - no expectation of a gig or external reward - is in the end the MOST rewarding. It takes me back to my roots (Hysterica Dance Co.) and reminds me of why I started making dance in the first place...to generate beauty, connect with my peers and contribute something worthwhile to society. Getting a little heavy here but it's so true.
Thank you, Thank you to the incredible Missy Mazzoli for allowing me to work with her music. And a big kiss to the startling Kelsey Landers, Kenzie McClure, Baden Silva and Derek Tabada for the love and inspiration. Thank you to edge performing arts for allowing us to create in your beautiful space!
