Thank you to those of you who came out to see my solo, Uncollected Works. Houses were full to the brim, audiences were warm and responses were overwhelmingly positive:
“I was deeply moved.”
“An artistic accomplishment.”
“Beautiful vulnerability and transparency of expression.”
Uncollected Works traverses the territory between movement as expression of experience and dance as a form of communication. What is possible to communicate through movement? What do we understand about one another? How can we go forward together in these precarious times?
I am so grateful to have had the guidance of award-winning artists Fides Krucker and Holly F Small in the studio. They have joined me as my fearless director/vocal co-devisor and sagacious movement dramaturge respectively. Costume design by Jennifer Dallas, lighting design by Logan Raju Cracknell.
I am also grateful for the support of this work by the Toronto Arts Council, the National Ballet of Canada through their studio residency program, Artscape Youngplace, and the Intergalactic Arts Collective.
I hope to share it again someday!
