Indelible [I closed the book and I changed my life] - to come!

Since January, I have been working on a new piece for six dancers, which we recently turned into a site-specific piece in Paley Library at Temple University.  We are performing the stage version at Temple University's graduate concert, ENDINGS on May 4th at 7:30pm.  It's a free show, so come out if you're around!

Here are some still shots from our site-specific performance in Paley Library:

The words behind the work

For the piece I am currently working on, I found a poem that, for me, compiled all the layers of the questions I was interested in asking. Here it is:

Untitled [I closed the book and changed my life]

I closed the book and changed my life and changed my life and changed my life and one more change and I was back here looking up at a blue sky with russets and the World was hypnotic but it wasn’t great. I wanted more range, maybe, more bliss, I didn’t know about bliss. Is bliss just a rant about the size of the bowl? The trance was the true thing, no, the rant, no, the sky, now, that icy whiteness.
