Hello! I’m very excited to be involved with Cultivate. Thank you, thank you to Motus for giving us this opportunity!
I’ve had a concept for a dance piece rolling around in my head for probably a year or more. I honestly never thought I’d have the chance to make it into something more than an idea. I learned about Motus’s Breaking Ground Workshop (June-August, 2010) and thought that would be a great venue to explore some of my thoughts. Breaking Ground really helped me with that first step of taking my ideas and seeing them on actual dancers rather than just in my head. Some things worked, somethings didn’t.
I was very happy with the results of the workshop and when I found out about Cultivate, I thought it would be a great way to continue the process that had started out as an idea, a feeling. I’ve now had three Cultivate rehearsals. The dancers have been wonderful to work with and I’m very happy with how my piece has continued to evolve!
I’m looking forward to seeing all of the pieces as we continue!
Until next time,
