It was challenging putting this piece together with only one 2 hour rehearsal per week and sometimes missing dancers. I had planned to do three movements. There are two. Not enough time to get it all done... alas. Well, we have 8 minutes. I am using music that Michel Ayello made; She Said Wait and Okla-Home the first is a song Michel made while watching me dance in Ella Condon's L'Empreinte video (http://vimeo.com/27892955). He used a poem I had written while listening to his Lawson (http://thelugglab.bandcamp.com/album/lawson ) album for the first time. Okla-Home is on Michel's album Dust Bowls it is the first movement.
I have enjoyed working with the CBC dancers. Thank you Jen Barrer-Gall! (She danced with Octavia Cup in the Dreaming this year at the FringeNYC and we await her return)
