If I were in L.A. on March 29th, I would be there.
I am starting up a new class here in Berlin, at Theaterkapelle to be precise. Teaching as creative practice. I plan to turn conventional didactic and methodology on its head, I will shake them up until they lay in shambles, and I will plant a new field of flexible elements - following my and participants’ needs for openness, space, room to be in more fully. It is part of a new strain of research...
Oral Dance Histories - at Tanznacht Berlin 2012 →
I teamed up with Peter Pleyer and Andrea Keiz for a series of meandering conversations while engaging in some pretty tactile activity: knitting and crocheting. A fantastic way to listen to some folks talk about Berlin dance history. I say this casually, but we had the chance to talk to the grand movers and shakers of the contemporary dance field, like Nele Hertling and Irene Sieben. What is...

We are both preparing individually for some joined teaching and performing in the first week of July 2012. It...

Dancing to Music
FEELS DIRTY. I am in a transitional void. In-between. Not here, not there. I have made it my practice to make space to experience resonances (of other places, of other bodies, of my corporeal history, of my myriad practices), things that resonate with me. I lost my artistic context for now, seemingly, trying to figure out how dance is understood and shared here, what is legible for audiences....
