  • A series of local dance history: Seeking submissions of your early work, maybe even your first work. If you are in your 20's, this may be from not that long ago. If you are in your 60's, like me, this is probably from decades ago. I am looking for submissions from dancers/choreographers/improvisers of all ages, and all kinds of dance. Your submission needs to be: -digitized, playable from a laptop into a video projector; -not more than ten minutes. If the entirety of the work is longer that …

This makes the patterns clearer, and gives a sense of the entire production. Unfortunately, it turns the music that was being improvised into gibberish. I was exploring totally new territory  here, and engaging a large and wide swath of the community of Potsdam/Berlin in a site specific dance performance.  
  • This work was a collaborative effort by the three of us, which I instigated. It represents some of the most intense, risky and skillful improvisation I was ever involved with. It was of particular significance to me because of our shared perspectives as 3 gay men living through the AIDS epidemic.  
  • This work with Chris was totally improvised, and part of an annual festival in which many improvisers share their work with each other, and the broader community. I chose to show this work with Chris, because we had been developing as an improvising duo for about 4 years by this time.  
  • This was part of my first work with Remy Charlip. Lance and I, under Remy’s direction, created this dance based on his “Wooloomooloo Cuddle" airmail dance. I chose to start with this excerpt, because it helps to demonstrate how I got started under Remy’s mentorship.
