I woke up this morning with ideas for how I would start my next project. An idea has been percolating for a while but I haven’t taken the plunge to begin. I am thinking this summer will be a good time to start. The piece is a duet that will be performed at Georgetown Hospital. A fellow movement artist, Keira Hart Mendoza, and I received funding through Georgetown Lombardi to create 4 dances that will be performed in site specific locations around the hospital. So exciting! We will each create one solo on each other and one group piece. This morning, I wrote down 4 improv scores that I want to try. The scores grapple with interruption, peacefulness, solitude, and support. I cannot see beyond this right now but I trust that the dance will reveal itself as we go. With dancemaking, there are no scripts, and no directions. It is a complete leap of faith. I love the process. I cannot see the sequencing of movement that I want to choreograph now, but once I have dancers in front of me, I will know what to throw at them. I want the piece to feel good on their bodies.
