The Devised Work

This was my first devised dance piece, and it all started with Taylor saying “I want to do a piece that explores reaching, longing, love” and “I really like this reaching motion (a long extended arm stretching reach), and the tap dancing scene from Mary Poppins.” And it evolved from there; I worked directly with Taylor in the space from the start, allowing for both of us to react off of each others work, to create a very unique and powerful piece. The vocal selections came from Great Expectations, and short stories written by the cast members.
