From the proposal:
"I will create a full length “story dance” using my face as my choreographic material. I think that this type of work is uniquely suited for the dance for camera genre. On stage, such minute movements are unable to reach the viewer. Via the camera, the viewer is able to engage with a micro world that challenges the boundaries of proportion and most ambitiously, perception. The central question of the work is Can the face be a compelling and complete material for choreographic exploration? What are its boundaries and what is its potential for extending a collective notion of choreographic space?"
