Varied Choreographies, video stills

"Archaic Torso of Apollo" by Rainer Maria Rilke


We cannot know his legendary head
with eyes like ripening fruit. And yet his torso
is still suffused with brilliance from inside,
like a lamp, in which his gaze, now turned to low,

gleams in all its power. Otherwise
the curved breast could not dazzle you so, nor could 
a smile run through the placid hips and thighs
to that dark center where procreation flared.

Otherwise this stone would seem defaced
beneath the translucent cascade of the shoulders
and would not glisten like a wild beast’s fur:

would not, from all the borders of itself,
burst like a star: for here there is no place
that does not see you. You must change your life.

Scenes from a common world

I am working with an international group of artists on a collaborative film project called "Laura, or Scenes from a Common World" that will be shot in Norway during July 2015.  More on this project as it develops.

From Square Top Theatre:

Now in production, our next original work explores the borderlands between film, theatre, dance, literature, and the contemporary fine arts. Laura combines visceral physicality, lyrical poetry, and evocative cinematography to explore one woman’s struggle to make herself at home in the world. Her struggle begins as a common one. A boy has left her. In losing him, she becomes less sure of the roles other people play in her self-creation. She seeks security in isolation only to find that landscape, community, and physical embodiment all ground who we are in ways she cannot escape. In this spare five-part drama, inspired by Ovid’s Apollo and Daphne myth, audiences see Laura seeking freedom by running away from the world, yet finding freedom, ultimately, in rootedness.
The project draws together artists from across the globe. Director Charles M Pepiton (USA/Washington), poet Damon Falke (USA/Norway), and artistWes Kline (USA/New York) previously collaborated on Square Top Theatre’s Now at the Uncertain Hour, a theatrical event for live performance, online streaming, and broadcast radio, which reached a combined live onsite/offsite audience of 46,053 in its premiere performance. For Laura, this team will be joined by printmaker Rebekah Wilkins-Pepiton (USA/Washington), costume designer Leslie Stamoolis (USA/Washington), performer Alexandra Kazazou(Greece/Poland), and movement director Daniel Han (USA/Australia).
The film will be shot and the physical work will be composed in Tromsø, Norway, where the interaction of elements symbolically significant for the piece – water, fire, earth – are dramatized by the land itself. The resulting production will exist as a film, as a gallery installation, and as a live theatrical production built to tour. In Norway, Laura finds the “acres of redemption” she seeks. She discovers that she must create her life out of what the world gives her – a boy picking apricots, an old woman shaping a boat, a father, a river, a stone.

Sketch for Teen Romance (Triangles)

After a nuclear war, there is a second nuclear war, even bigger than the first. This causes mutations among the survivors of the first nuclear war, eventually killing them after a period of painful radiation poisoning. Several teens survive however; to be exact, three teens. These teens start a new civilization and also a love triangle. Many guns were left over from the war, although some had melted in the nuclear explosion. The teens make a pile of these guns on a table that was undamaged from the nuclear explosions, both the first and the second explosion. Somehow this table had survived while all the other people on the planet aside from these teens had not. The pile looks like a pyramid. They enjoy a meal of baked beans, as that is the only food left on the planet. They also make a pact that no matter what happens, they will not repeat the mistakes of their parents. They sing a song, but not about the proletariat or anything. Most likely it is about love.
