The soul leaves the body. Drawn by intense light, the spirit discovers its twin self, its feminine side...its guide in the beyond. Inspired by the myths of the afterlife, this allegorical dance piece illuminates the soul's quest by exploring movement and the human body in new and astonishing ways. An evocation of the origins of the world. A hymn to the beauty of the human form. A celebration of movement.

While I was making “Not About Iraq” I was simultaneously affronted by the double-speak of the Bush government and the knowledge of lives being destroyed at home and also far away. Could I make a dance that directly confronted the current political moment without being didactic? Could a dance be a forum in which to better understand my own problematic sense of citizenship?
