Wooden Part 2 is currently in development. This video was shot at Culturemart, the HERE Arts festival of workshop performances.
This is an excerpt of my new dance Wooden. This quartet mirrors environmental cycles and explores the decay of structure. Performed on a living set of grass Wooden Part 2 is the second in the Wooden series.
This section occurs after the performers have been tossed at high velocity across the stage. After having found themselves blind and walking backwards they open their eyes and perform this earthy, grounded dance
This piece is being developed at the HERE Artist Residency Program.
