PROGRAM

Reprise (2018) performed by Pioneer Winter Collective
Reprise blends contemporary dance and personal narrative to explore queer experiences and intersectionality, (in)visibility and power.

Body (Miami premiere, 2019) performed by Jacksonville Dance Theatre
Body explores body shaming, which many experience. The piece is divided into sections named for individual physical components, like blood and muscle, teeth and bones, cell and DNA...

Better (in-progress, premiere, 2019) performed by Jacksonville Dance Theatre
It’s about life. It’s about how we try to avoid unavoidable things. It’s about seeing a problem and waiting for others to see it too. And once all see, delaying a solution or shifting responsibility. It’s about finally acknowledging nobody else can be held responsible for what we all see. And that even our solution - or avoidance - is a temporary one.
