Home Leaving

Improvised composition directed by: David Marchant

"Home Leaving" is a fully improvised composition: there is no "set" movement or score for the dancers to rely on-- only the skill and presence of their bodies and minds, spontaneously relating in movement.  In this dance we explore the dynamic, unpredictable relationships between people we live with, and also the "familiar" bond we form with the place we live.

Two, and Only Two

Choreographed by Christine Knoblauch-O’Neal

This work grew out of a duet in a dance I created last year for WUDT.  The duet always felt as if there was something more to investigate, to look into, and so I chose to do just that.  The duet has grown into three duets each revealing a part of this pairing, this relationship, and together create, not necessarily a whole, but a journey through the interior of what makes the relationship impossible and what makes it possible.
