Orbicular, created with Bree Breeden, investigates how the choreographers’ actual differences in generations, race, economic power and dance work together to produce visual and creative tension. These differences are evoked, navigated, and subverted to challenge conventional hierarchical patterns. Orbicular instead develops multilayered relationships between the performers themselves and between the performers and the audience's expectations of identity and power.
Terraloop was commissioned to premiere at the Triskelion Arts Center in January 2017. In it, 6 women build an eerie world as rhythms pass from one dancer to the next. Terraloop explores the way repetition can create an arc of an experience, and the way that rhythms can create patterns and intensities between bodies. The piece integrates aggressively virtuosic and rhythmic dancing, immersive projections, and an original sound score.
