COLLABORATION IS KEY!

Choreographing The Wheel for Hysterica was a kinetic adventure! Collaborating with artist/designer Lara Schnitger truly expanded my way of thinking about structure, movement and design.

Friend and collaborator Diana Koenigsberg captured the creativity in a one of a kind photo shoot featuring choreography, design and performance with dancers Reshma Gajjar, Andy Acosta, Hunter Hamilton, Marlon Pelayo, Justine Clark and Tara Brook.

COLLABORATION IS KEY!

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!

here is a bit about the show:

With all original concept, choreography, and stage/costume design, the story of LILIT physically cross-examines historical gender contradictions and amplifies ancient female howls through a deafening channel of thrashing virtuosity. Her story takes shape in the edgy silence of a hovering unmarked enemy. She is the folkloric assignment unseen female forces and the answer to otherwise inexplicable phenomena among men.
