This past summer I was one of three artists selected to participate in the first ever Moving Current Dance Collective/New Grounds Choreographic Residency at the 2011 Florida Dance Festival. This two-week intensive program involved working closely with dancers, choreographers, and choreographic mentors to develop and create work. The creative process began with the physical investigation of giving and receiving support. This “support” could be given through the dancer’s body, and many interesting images emerged in the studio as I asked them to move one another with only their head or allow someone to carry their weight. These simple tasks were the starting point from which we created the movement vocabulary.
