  • Emily Gastineau updated the Artwork 7. one born bad
    I am the one to the right of the screen in the white dress. This piece was psychologically challenging and impactful in my development as an artist and so I am including it here. It required that I perform to intimate audiences numbering fewer than 10 people. In this clip, I am of the same mind as my fellow performer and we move improvisationally in tandem. I was the only performer to speak throughout the entire performance. Here I use my voice for the first time and recount the past abuses of a…
  • Emily Gastineau updated the Artwork 6. Pamela
    I am wearing a black dress and black scarf. The clip begins with me walking away from the couch and towards the ladder. This piece was collaboratively made and character driven. It is also a reflection of my interest in performing in venues outside the traditional stage. In this solo I bring Pamela's psyche to the surface - tightly wound, exhaustingly dramatic, wrought with longing.   
  • Emily Gastineau updated the Artwork 5. Heaven
    password: improvise At the beginning of the clip I am downstage on the far left of the screen.  I have long dark hair and am wearing white pants.     Heaven exemplifies my strength as an ensemble member. One of the most important responsibilities I have as a performer is to support the integrity and intention of the work by knowing when to blend with the group. In this clip, I am lodged in the choreography, skillfully moving back and forth between unison duets and trios with other performers.…
  • At the beginning of the clip, I am one of two dancers in motion. I am downstage with my back to the audience with short dark hair and ornate black and white fabric on the back of my costume. This clip features my virtuosity in singing and speaking complicated text while dancing in unison with another performer. First you see me singing and dancing. Then I am swallowed momentarily by a group improvisation before continuing the unison duet. This is complicated by the fact that the text he and I ar…
  • I am alone and center stage at the beginning of the clip.  Because the camera zooms in, you are able to see my face and the quality of my expression throughout this solo. The choreography requires both a softness and a sharp execution. Once other performers enter and the camera cuts back and forth between their action and mine, you see the nuances of my interplay with them.   
  • I am the one to the right of the screen in all blue with short dark hair. Most of the creative work that I value and am committed to being involved with is ensemble work. This means that single performers are less likely to be featured as soloists and so a lot of the samples I have chosen include me dancing with others. This clip in particular begins with a brief group improvisational score and very quickly shifts into a unison duet between myself and another performer. You can see my movement p…
  • Emily Gastineau updated the Artwork 1. writ Large
    I am seated at the right of the screen wearing an orange top and white shorts. This clip gives a sense of my aesthetic. As the dancer upstage stares at her navel, I dig into myself.  My honesty is my priority. The audio recording is of my own voice, reading poetry generated by improvised dances I provoked with others in Germany.
