or SELF PORTRAIT AS ALLEGORY OF CONVERSATION

Contrapunctus (while we were waiting) is a response to solitude. Created for dancer Christine Ceconello, and danced to selections from Bach’s The Art of Fugue, the work is an exploration of aloneness as a state of vast possibility, a reflection on the body as vital resource in increasingly complex times.
