For the past twenty years, I have been investigating new movement vocabularies for contemporary dance. I’ve worked with a wide array of populations new to dance, from children, street performers, and athletes, to artists with disabilities. Most recently, I have been working with senior populations, mixing this community with young modern dancers, exploring how these disparate groups can learn from one another about the nature of movement and expression. This has led me to realize that those with limited movement ability can often find maximal expression in the movements they are capable of creating. Limitations in the physicality of these older dancers have expanded my own choreographic vocabulary.”
