'Studies in Solitude'
'Studies in Solitude' is a dance film & performance project that investigates the solo body's relationship to self and place. The work examines how the container and desire of a body shift based on the content of surrounding landscape. This first installment of Studies in Solitude was created up in the Catskill Mountains and Hudson River Valley, and engages with both poetic pastoral landscapes as well as raw and real homes and neighborhoods of communities displaced up to Hudson from the Bronx. These studies invite the viewer to witness a body navigating within, around and amongst spatial histories. 'Studies in Solitude' was made while in residence at the Catwalk Art Institute, Catstill, NY in August 2015.
