ABOUT THE PIECE
Intersections is about the edges that define and contextualize relationships. The work is about time, memory, and exploring the nuances of human connection.
Intersections was developed in collaboration with the performers Marc Ellis Holland and Carly Lenzi. The intent was to use a collaborative process to understand the humanity and shared experiences of someone else through embodied dialogueinstead of verbal discussion. At the outset of the project, the two dancers did not know each other. The process involved reflective writing on questions I posed to them, the exploration of movement responses, then weaving our movement together into a physicalized duet conversation.
