I’m performing, flexing my inner peacock, and trying to watch what happens.
What began essentially as a dare – Natural sprouted from an assignment given to me by Jumatatu Poe in the 2008 48 Hour Dance Project – spurred the most in depth solo endeavor I’ve ever embarked upon. It is now a larger improvisational score that pretty consistently makes me incredibly uncomfortable, angry, cocky, bold, sorrowful, and confused – all in the span of a couple minutes.
