The Forest Embryo:
I was so excited and happy to be a part of the first ever City of Forest day celebrations at Roosevelt Isand. Thank you to @idig2learn for giving me the opportunity to present this work and be a part of this amazing day.
The dance, The Forest Embryo, choreographed by yours truly, was about the journey trees take throughout their lives. Starting with the sprouting of the sapling to the emotions they feel during childhood, all the way to the end of their journey, where they are asking us to see them and listen to them.
The dance was a journey itself to choreograph. Trying to understand the trees and be with them. I learned a lot from just sitting and examining and being around them. It was truly a joy to dance with them.
