Every dance is created upon a set of basic principles. This new process will based on the following:

1. The power of the individual

2. The danger of the mass

3. Creating an extensive movement vocabulary for each dancer and for them as a whole

4. Layers of choreography to show a slow but distinct build of community

5. A small dancer to audience ratio (as close to one on one as possible, but not oppressive, or forced)

6. The use of a long rectangular space

7. The use of found music and composed music

These are the things I see in my mind, the ideas I keep returning to over, and over again. The core of the movement vocabulary is still a bit vague, but I have visions full bodied movement, arms, legs, torsos all working to reach their full length.

That’s it for now! More soon….
