WORKS-IN-PROGRESS

 

Migration and Constructed Identities:  these sections of the work is being choreographed for ten to twenty dancers.  The spoken text (not shown here) will be taken from collected migration narratives; the music will be a combination of original and already released.   I am currently in the studio with dancers, text, and rehearsal music.

Migration and Constructed Identities, which began in Belgium in summer of 2014, is presently in the U.S. creating new works from immigrant narratives.  I am on the look our for dancers and performers, and rehearsals have begun in New York City and Boston.  Please check back for open rehearsal invitations anticipated for early spring 2017.

We (De-Napoli Clarke  who appeared virtually,  and Jiannis Pachos, Panagiotis Pantidos, and I) had a fabulous time delivering the presentation Break-in Point: Somatic Narratives, the convergence of art and science in the transformation of temporal communities at the 2015 SDHS/CORD (Society of Dance History Scholars/the Congress on Research in Dance) Conference held in June 4 -7 in Athens, Greece.

2015 Conference theme Cut and Paste: Dance Advocacy in the age of Austerity was the perfect platform for this interdisciplinary trans-national collaboration.  We are now editing and revising the conference presentation for publication.  

Break-in’ Point, an arts and science collaboration with professional dance artist, De-Napoli Clarke ,   theoretical physicist,  Jiannis Pachos,  and myself, was sponsored by the University of Leeds Department of Physics and Astronomy and Stage@Leeds at University of Leeds.  The  project  enjoyed two well received performances at the Stage@Leeds, at the University of Leeds, 7 June  and 18 September 2012.

Reflections on the body and theology engagement project and workshop series  Body Matters: Somatic Conversations on Christianity, Love, and Justice are being compiled, analyzed, written up for publication.  This initiative has  been particularly timely given the dynamic issues around justice, love, and black bodies in the United States, the politics of bodies in the Ukraine, the challenges to ethically appropriate responses to climate change and other ongoing issues of justice and the bodies of vulnerable peoples throughout the world, and the varying Christian responses.

Upcoming journeys to Toronto, Belgium and Slovania will include engagements for the project Migration and Constructed Identities.
