12 - 9 = 3

For the month of September, I was in residency at an arts colony called The Yard (on Martha's Vineyard) making a new dance called THE GREAT WORLD SPINS. I got to spend the entire month in a beautiful place with free rehearsal space and wonderful dancers at my disposal. While there, I got an email inviting me to show something live in New York, on a mixed bill with a great collection of other choreographers, later this fall:

November 4-7 at West End Theater

So we're working now on a trio version of GREAT WORLD, with 2 of the 3 dancers pictured in the slideshow above. I'll miss the 12-person cast that danced in the September shows at The Yard: 4 interns, and 5 community dancers - including one aged 13 and one aged 76. That group helped make GREAT WORLD a wonderful, kaleidoscopic dance of life - and the end of life.

But the remaining 3 professional dancers, more or less based in NYC, were central to the piece - and with them I'll re-create a smaller WORLD for the Soaking WET show: 12 - 9 = 3! Come see it!
