Waiting

"... sometimes a whole dance piece-- choreography, dancer, music, costume, lighting-- all of it, can steal one's heart for a moment."

"My creation process with Waiting was inside out.  I wanted to get the deeper thoughts out by slowing down and making the movement small.  My wonderful costume designer Claire Pasquier and lighting designer Christian Mejia were a  big part of creation."
