The Dance Films Association selected me as artist-in-residence at the Art Mill in Jeffersonville, NY. There, I collaborated with designer and videographer Josh Higgason on a video performance piece titled Waterfall with sound score by composer, Chris Becker. Everything about this work was improvised and experimental for me. It facilitated a shift in my self-view as an artist by working in new-to-me ways with movement, nature, societal norms and performance art.
Sensing, feeling and responding to the force and temperature of the water allowed me to let shapes emerge. Initiated as a video dance project, in the process of doing it changed form into a meditative space of being in water. I would like to explore this kind of dance environment more as my body of work develops.
