I’m kind of always ‘movement drunk’ and full of lust for wild dance that takes me to the edge of my own capacities, the sensation of force, freedom, forming and un-forming as my body strikes or slithers through space…it’s just addictive. Right now and always, I’m interested in pushing limits and breaking boundaries… to explore exhaustion, speed, intimacy, partnership, to interrogate my own intentions as a human being, choreographer, educator, parent, woman, female dancer, public artist and member of an ever expanding universe.

“It’s a funny idea to organize your life around making something that no one asked for and then even funnier to hope that you can continue to do this unlikely thing for a long time. Somedays my career feels a magic trick that I am just pulling off. I was a philosophy major in college and thought I would go to law school and become a judge. Then when I was looking into which law school to apply to, I realized that I did not want to spend my days doing this. I wanted to spend my days making dances.”

“I don’t think I’ve ever felt more aware of capitalism in my life as I do now. In general I feel really sad about the commercialization and commodification of choreographic product. So much pressure to self-promote, self-market, self-brand. Obviously the internet has liberated ‘the small guy’ for having a shot at creating new opportunities, but the constant chase to connect is killing something about the nature of the work itself.”

Graduates 2015

What are NYC Dance Seniors Thinking As They Graduate?

With a degree finally in hand, seniors feel the mixed emotions of completion, anticipation, trepidation and pride. Some have detailed plans of what comes next. Some see a giant blank horizon ahead. Some have work starting on Monday. Some want to savor the celebration and put off plans for later. As 5 ambitious college dancers finally cross the finish line, we bring you their inner monologues–their fears, joys and reflections.

In thinking about longevity of work and sustainability of the people in this form, personally I am excited about how works can manifest in different genres. Creating an album that lives beyond the live performance or a film relic that can circuit the internet. Creating blogs that capture process or even making the internet a place for live performance to live. I think we are on the verge of embracing these necessary changes.

Nothing is made to be beautiful. My work is the result of ideas and thoughts that need to be expressed. Love, sex, confusion, discovering, re­learning, finding, looking, falling, my own experiences, my sensitivity. I do not care if it is correct or not. If it comes to me by coincidence, I like it even better. I try to use elements that are available to everybody.
