How do I choreograph a piece?
I'm not trying to tell a story, or say what it is
I'm trying to find out what the dance is, once I teach it to the dancers. Through their performance I learn the fine tuning of the sketch that I come in with.
Space plays a big role in terms of the performance of the movement
Space, time, self and audience are the ingredients I work with in terms of the performance of the choreographed material
There is no time to improvise in my piece. The dancers are given so much to notice
Lightening is a play on words. I'm devoted to using language to excite the imagination.
They make choreographic choices about space and time within the performance of my dances.
