Past Projects

Limit

This compositional puzzle is performed within a one hundred square foot rectangle. The dance was sparked by images of the Mong Kok container like low-income apartment units in Hong Kong and other forms of condensed living spaces.

This piece was made in part with the help of Shua Space in Jersey City, NJ.

Soundboard

The vulnerability of the solo performer is heightened by tasks that intentionally disorient the body. Momentum is built then suppressed in sudden stillness, balance is negotiated in bending forms, and changes in directions violently weave the body through space.

Development of this work was made possible by a 2013 CoLab/Lustig Dance Theater: New Works Residency.
