Winter comes to an end. Adeiu!
So! Since APAP a lot of things have happened. I traveled with Jane Comfort to Ballet Memphis to help set a new work on the company for a week in January. It was great fun! You can see some of our rehearsals here:
February was full of auditions and rehearsals and serving coffee and writing grants and trying to stay warm with good friends.
In March I traveled to Texas State University to perform with a group of Juilliard musicians lead by Wayne O'Quin. Yara Travieso choreographed a solo for me that involved video projection, a long piece of Lycra that was wrapped around me and attached to a boom and a talented violinist on stage fearing for his life and limbs. Everyone in Texas was extremely kind and engaging. It was a great trip.
Later that month I performed with Erica Essner Performance Co-Op in Tarrytown, New York. It was part of a festival that was being held in an old Vaudeville theater that was celebrating it 125th birthday. I knew many dancers involved and we had a lovely day in Tarrytown. The performance was well attended and I enjoyed performing with Erica's group for the first time. Joy!
I most recently got back from George Mason University in Manassas, Virginia where I was performing with Tamar Rogoff in Diagnosis of a Faun. It is a piece that is near and dear to my heart and I was grateful to have a chance to perform it again. The cast and crew are so loving and easy to work with. It was also nice to see daffodils and tulips and cherry trees blooming. Spring has sprung! (Finally. It is mid-April...)
So the last half of a bitter winter has past with a flurry of activity that I hope carries on into the future. Stay tuned for more news soon!
