Happy November newsletter! I was named the J Chen Project 2019 CORE Choreography Competition Winner and now I get to present my choreography at the Ailey Citigroup Theater!!! It has been an absolute pleasure to work with this company and Jessica Chen. I have collaborated with composer Grace Villamil on this work entitled Woven Ritual. I hope to see you tonight!
Spark Movement Collective is celebrating 10 years and I am so happy to be a part of it. I will be dancing in this diverse program and also presenting Untitled Home with new music by Ryan Wolfe. This new work explores aspects of home, how we construct sensations about the homes we grew up in, and how those memories are distilled in our minds as individuals and as a collective.The dancers are in a place of recollecting and revisiting and in some cases the dancers are physical parts, artifacts, or people from the past. These elements are pushing in and almost feel as if they are interjecting or imploding on the dancers and in other instances they are whispering and distant. Sometimes these memories are potent, sometimes slippery, and in some cases we construct a bit of fantasy or imagination around them. I am super excited to share this with you!
Happy to go back to Arts On Site November 16th!!! It is always a pleasure to dance, present, and connect at this wonderful place. Come join the Arts On Site Performance Party on November 16th. Doors at 7pm & Show begins at 8pm.
I am thrilled to be creating for New England Ballet Collective. This company will perform my work through out the New England Area and I am very much looking forward to showing it November 22nd at The Wadsworth Atheneum. I will also be performing at this show with a special guest.
Thank you for reading and supporting! I hope to see you soon at a show, a class, or somewhere in between. Much Love. —Michelle
