"Presenting a generation of new dance-makers who articulate the physical and emotional energy of contemporary life. It's fresh, it's current, it's now. This ground-breaking concert features work by RDT alumni Francisco Gella, Sarah Donohue, and Angela Banchero-Kelleher plus the winner of the 2017 REGALIA choreographer competition, Nichele Van Portfleet." –RDT
In February 2017 I was honored to win RDT's Regalia competition, receiving a commission to create a new work for the company's 2017-2018 season.
Flood is an experiment in momentum. My recent works have been considering the impact of touch, the dynamics of power, the various aspects and experiences of authenticity, and the ensemble as an organism of diverse yet complementary individuals. We worked quickly, creating the piece over the course of 5 days. The dance traverses an unravelling; threads are loosened and refinement undone to enter a space of presence and impact. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with this vibrant, diverse group of moving thinkers, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to create this work with them through RDT’s Regalia process.
