Premiered at Ten Tiny Dances @ The Dance Complex in Cambridge, MA.
The process of this piece unfolded like magic. Tasked to create a piece within the confines of a 4×4 foot platform, I ultimately explored the idea of creating a new world. The dancers and I explored this world of 4×4 in a way that allowed us to find an idiosyncratic culture full of intention and relationship. The satisfying result is that of surprise and causality.

Choreography Excerpts (2009-2012)
Honey Sweet Pommegranate Seeds
The story of the Abduction of Persephone is illuminated in this original dance theatre piece that was created and work-shopped in collaboration with students from the University of Virginia’s Dance Program. Students shot footage and gathered sounds that were then used to create the full-length video and musical score. UVa music professor and director of the Virginia Center for Computer Music, Judith Shatin, compiled and created the wildly mysterious music from the sound clips collected. Videographer and photographer, Richard Robinson, is responsible for the video that serves as another element of the dance, creating atmosphere and furthering the story. Choreographer and Artistic Director, Rose Pasquarello Beauchamp, took the creativity accumulated from the workshop and transformed it into a piece for the company, inFluxdance. These dancers took this wonderfully collaborative piece to a new level.
