The inspiration for my piece came to me while I was driving in the car. It was probably not the safest ride home, but I was filled with so many ideas that I didn't want to forget! My dance is based on the ocean and the creatures that live in it. I want to explore the essence, the core, of these animals.
I want to take the audience on a journey. I want them to experience another world. We will start at the waves and descend to the deep sea before coming back up to the surface.
I am excited to begin working on my piece with my dancers. I spent all summer creating phrases, exploring ideas, structuring the dance, and more. I couldn't wait for Orchesis to begin because I was so excited to start! And now that rehearsals have begun, I can't wait to see where the piece will go!
