In an unexpected moment, suddenly you are thrust into a cycle in which you are caught. "Impromptu" is a piece about dealing with the confines of repetition, the resistance met in trying to move on and make a change, and yet in the end, being the only person who is reflexively barring the gate.
A rope piece performed in the Spring Back Dance Concert, at Oberlin College.
Accompaniment by and in collaboration with Adrian Jewell on the piano.
Special thanks to: Holly Handman-Lopez, Deborah Vogel, Michelle Arvin and Carter McAdams for the video.
