“I want to leave my body, but I want to take my body with me when I go” is an autopsy of technique as it was taught to me, and it is dedicated to my teachers. I am thrilled to collaborate with composer and multi-instrumentalist Anthony Brocatto. – Caitlin

“The Mysteries of Life: a Queer Nature Walk” is a multimedia installation and performance that uses true stories of animals’ social interactions and mating rituals to challenge heteronormativity and affirm queerness and transness as natural. – Catherine

Jess is making a new long solo dance that explores the untapped energy of hot flashes, and incorporates eating a mango. – Jessica

“in the Ether” explores how our Roman Catholic upbringing formed our experience of womanhood. With the influence of women represented in biblical lore and myth, we hope to further investigate the cyclical transformations that occur in our lives. – Claire + Caroline

As dancers who often work with musicians, we are deeply interested in musical textures. We are playing at the edges, blurring music and dance. This residency will support an exploration into ways dance can create layers in arrangement. – Rebecca + Jackie

Once Upon A Dream. This artistic style originated when Brandi woke up from a sleepless night…. A night of thunder. A divine manifestation of cosmic order. – Brandy
