After a 15 year hiatus from Bebe Miller Company, I  join for the Making Room a project in collaboration with Susan Rethorst about the exploration of process,  and the ongoing-ness of making. Out of this endeavor was born the evening length work In a Rhythm, with performances at Jacobs Pillow, Wexner Center, On the Boards in Seattle, and New York Live Arts during the 2017-2018 season. In 2018 I will join the company on a tour teaching and performing in Columbia and Peru as "cultural" ambassadors for DanceMotion USA, a project sponsored by the US Department of State.

Bebe Miller's creative process is one of the first major arenas for creative dancemaking that I refer to in my artistic work as "eventing." For me this work requires the conjuring of states of moving tempered by rigorous choreographic imperatives.
