more about the piece: this work is a memory wash of herstory with a disregard to close detail and a concentration to the overall landscape of feeling, color, and light. the work is inspired by the ritual of presenting young girls in white to their communities. Looking at specific societal happenings, i.e. debutante balls, and religious organizations traditions of my past experience, I am creating a dance work that will tell a story of a girl-lady and how she learns what it means to be clean, spiritually and physically.
