December show - 2012

I am at the moment in the midst of getting our December show together taking place December 13 - 15 in the Black Box at the Rose Wagner building. It will be a retrospective of some of the most intensely physical and emotionally raw pieces that I have done while being the Artistic Director and choreographer in residence with The Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company here in Salt Lake City. Some of the work featured are "Interiors", a collaborative piece that I did with local grafitti Artist and painter, Trent Call, "Lost" - a work that was created and based on the stories of four former gang members, who were also illegal immigrants here in SLC, "But, Seriously" - the highly acclaimed collaboration from 2011. This work was done in collaboration with actor, Ethan John Phillips, Architect, Nathan Webster and Writer, David Kranes. This is an extraordinary piece that deals with the highly vulnerable fate of the stand-up comedian.

Singapore residency - August 13th through the 24th.

I have been asked to re-create my 1997 work "Flower Eaters" in Singapore with the group Arts fIssions in less than a month. Very exciting indeed. "Flower Eaters" is based on a dark text by French poet Baudelaire. The original piece had incredibly fast paced movement that is hard to achieve, this time I am planning to push the physical envelope even further. I'm looking forward to working with this group as they are known for their dedication to promoting site-specific work, the original piece was staged at the Illiance Francaise in Singapore. This will be my fifth time back in Singapore - can not wait.
