Lisa and I took a Gaga class at Dance Loft on 14 then toured the space. It is still under construction and is very exciting to see it come together. We talked about dance dreams. We danced too.
A dance in Baltimore. It’s finally warm at least for a couple of days. So after a meal at Sticky Rice I do a little dance for you.
Jessica and I make this dance after a little karaoke on a Tuesday night in Columbus, OH. 2007
A dance overlooking DC with the lovely Shallom.
In this dance, Justin and I make it harder for you to tell us apart.
From September 2007. Holly Bass’ performance art piece “Show and Prove” at Transformer Gallery. Anyone could ask her to dance and only the two of you heard the music as you danced together in the crowd. I remember that the song was slow and a woman was singing about love. I kept thinking we were listening to Billie Holiday singing “The Man I Love” but it was not that song. David Morneau adds his take on what the music could have been with his 60 second composition.
Megan and I discussed the idea of narrative vs abstraction for our dance. I decided to comment on the fact that the location is a well used site specific dance space. Ultimately I cut out a lot of the narrative that I had written for a simpler more poetic narrative.
Sometimes you see a space and think “that would be a cool place to dance” which is exactly what happened here. Megan did a triple solo to bring the space to life.
From the fourth day of dancing from 2007
