schematic

choreographer: sidra bell

lighting: rachel alulis

costumes: e.l. hohn

In general, my work emphasizes a high degree of physicality and input from the dancers, encouraging them to execute movement with intention, play, curiosity, calm, empathy, ease and focus. schematic is a work standing on the concept of "pure movement." The piece exists between the realms of "precision choreography" and "structured improvisation." It is a conversation with such twentieth century postmodern choreographers as Merce Cunningham.
