In every second we are creating a moment.
What more can an artist do for
their audience than create moments? Than create
an experience that
resonates through every part of you. That makes
you feel completely alive.
Our greatest intention is to create performance
that leaves the audience and performers feeling more connected
with themselves, to their immediate surroundings, and to the possibilities
that exist in their imagination.
-To create choreographic work that offers audience
and performers the opportunity to discover new approaches to their
relationship with dance
-To stimulate a conversation amongst audience and performers regarding
their continuously evolving aesthetics in choreography and performance
-To lead the practice of real-time intuitive choice making for
both professional performers and non-performers
-To generate choreographic work through a process that relies
on real-time intuitive choice making within a collaborative environment
-To garner a consistent company of performers and designers who
are paid at a professional level
-To choreograph contemporary dance work in San Diego that is shared
both locally and around the globe, advocating for San Diego contemporary
dance both nationally and internationally
