Muscle Memory will be an interactive project about memory, dance, collaboration and the pursuit of a creative life.
Video, music, and photography will intimately tell the stories of college friends who took enormous creative risks in their youth -and then grew up. For the project they agreed to learn new dance steps and perform again despite the changes in
their aging bodies and the complexities of their adult lives. The creative influences of the past remained intact and
despite everyone’s diverse life choices they were able to come together and reignite their passion for dance. This
short video is one section of the larger project.
Muscle Memory is a poetic documentary about the power of memory and the intersection of what a mind remembers and what a body feels. It is a hybrid film about my former life as a dancer and a choreographer and how that world became integral to my identity as a filmmaker. It is also about how to move forward when the creative tools we relied on for so long are no longer available to us.
