I am back in New York and although I’m frustrated by my Achilles tendon rupture, I couldn’t be more excited about the new dance we are creating…. and what a coincidence it’s a chair dance. I know what you are thinking — does everyone have to have a chair dance? Well, I swear ours is different, think 12 chairs and dancers moving in kaleidoscopic patterns to an original score by Jonathan Pratt, inspired by marching bands.
I’m loving the collaborative process and I invite you to follow us during this creative journey – there is plenty of laughter along the way. Here are some of my favorite moments in the studio.
A short little phrase that Nicole and I made up – don’t you like my boot?
Trial & Error – somethings don’t go according to planned, in this case – error.
Some of our most inspired moments come from improvising – yikes.
People always ask – how do you remember all the steps – well it’s very clear, we speak in code. This is a must watch.
I imagine that some of the ideas of Twelve Chairs will be influenced by the recovery of my injury and hopefully, I’ll lose that boot by opening night…only four weeks away.
