May 2016 at Portland Community College Performing Arts Center, Portland OR.
I created this work for/on/with the Dance Performance Students at Portland Community College in Spring of 2016. Together, we were inspired by Khalil Gibran's work: The Madman. We questioned what it means to wear a mask, the different ones we display each day, and the meanings and contradictions they offer us. We danced concepts of darkness and light, separation and unity, despair and joy.
