)The dancers contributed to the work with movement phrases and stories of feeling alone in the dance industry. We used these tools to create “Black Solitude”. I will gladly send you recordings of our rehearsal process as well as other projects I am currently working on through your request.In order to make this study happen, I request your help with round trip flight and housing accommodations. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
