It was great to see everyone come out for the Motus Cultivate auditions! I want to say thanks to the dancers who auditioned, the other choreographers and Motus for allowing us all the chance to come together and create dance!
So far we’ve had three rehearsals for my piece titled “Falling.” The piece is coming together already and the dancers are so open to trying new movements! It’s such an exciting process. We’re exploring how bodies fall through space separately and in tandem. I’m really proud of the dancers’ commitment to the movement. Some of what I’m asking them to do requires intense trust in one another and even this early in the process they’ve already been able to accomplish that.
Our first Motus showing, where members of Motus view and critique our pieces, is this weekend. Cross your fingers for good feedback as we continue on this journey!
