every time i visit the getty i am overwhelmed by the beauty - the art, the architecture, the garden, the view. a few years ago, dance camera west gave me the opportunity to create a piece specifically for the outdoor space. inspired by the interplay of water and architecture, it was a joy to choreograph three dances for such an iconic la landmark. i am honored to be featured on the getty's website for their #gettyinspired campaign: http://www.getty.edu/inspired/kitty-mcnamee/ please take a moment to check it out!
Sometimes you get into a work and things shift...like someone turned the lights out on you...you find yourself searching, reaching for something familiar to hold on to. Sylvia was one of those pieces. I chose to move forward in the dim, moving only toward the dancers and their experiences. This mystery was a beautiful one to unravel.
beautiful dancers are: Christian Brower, Ty Wells, Toi'ya Leatherwood, Jesse Steidler, Hannah Odgers, Sebastian Mazur and Baden Silva.
