2015 is well on its way!
Since my last dispatch in May I presented my work in progress Restless Night, I moved out of New York City and relocated to my home town of Seattle, Washington. I am very happy to be back in the land of trees and mountains but harbor a deep and abiding reverence for all the incredible people and experiences I had in the last ten years in NYC.
I took the opportunity after moving to travel. I've experienced many changes, countries, languages and feelings in the last 8 months. It has been great fun and a great challenge.
Here is a list of places I've been and some highlights since June:
Plovdiv, Bulgaria : Layers at Black Box International Dance and Theater Festival
New York City, NY : Recitals at Chen Dance Center
Seattle, Wa : Classes and workshops at Velocity Dance Center
Coeur d'Alene, Idaho : Lady of the Lake Dance and Music Camp
Nashville, TN : Phantom Limb Creative Residency at OZ
Vienna, Austria : Impulstanz!
Roma, Italy : Eating all the gelato, seeing all the sights
Brussels, Belgium : Improv workshop with David Zambrano
Bergen, Norway : Frolicking on Mt. Floyen
Goteborg, Sweden : The dancers of Gotesborg Danskompani
Wuppertal, Germany : Tanztheater Wuppertal's Sweet Mambo
Vancouver BC, Canada : Visiting Kidd Pivot rehearsals
Los Angeles, CA : Halloween!
Hawai'i, HI : Seeing whales, swimming with turtles, chasing geckos.
Needless to say this journeying has taught me many things. Some old lessons were hammered home including, introduce yourself to everyone, ask every question, and don't put anything off because you might not pass this way again.
As we hurtle through 2015 I wish you great energy. May the rest of the year bring you joy and purpose. Tally - ho!
