Artist Statement

Generating movement and sound based on selected works from our upcoming production, "Error Message," this piece muses on the inner workings of a dancer's mind while she moves through choreography. Her interactions with props, other dancers, the audience and her own breath frequently motivate and mobilize her action as she navigates the ever-changing topography of each performance.
