"Almost Human" was performed at the Cowell Theater for SF International Dance Festival in May 2017. We started this piece the day after the election in November 2016. We had no idea what we were going to create at the time but pushed on to discover. Themes for this piece are very personal to me, deconstruction, disintegration, coming together and moving apart..... this piece started as a reaction to the anger and sorrow we felt from the election, and later for me, I discovered that it was also a reaction to my own grief in a family member dealing with dementia. So, while it was a happy time creating this in that I got to share my time with amazing artists, it is kind of a sad piece I guess. But beautiful too. The entire piece is 20 minutes.
