For Pairings this year, I have been assigned the task of creating choreography to a pairing of port wine (sponsored by Republic National Distributing Company) – a rich, sweet, and heavy wine – with pink salted carmels (sponsored by Litterally Divine Toffee & Truffles). I want to make sure that, in addition to creating movement, the entire visual reflects the dramatic qualities of both the wine and chocolate. And so, this year I am extending beyond choreography into costume design. These are photos of the costumes in progress. More pics of the final product soon!
