The Village Dancer

The journey continues.

After finishing my hike, I returned rather quickly to the mountains to work in a kitchen.  Watch snow fall from inside a warm building.  And try to put words to describe the border to border journey.

I’m still working on the words, perhaps  the description will be in the dance.

I am still in the mountains.

This time as a Resident Artist at Holden Village.  This is a six week residency in which I get to work on as many dance projects as I can think up while living in a tiny mountain village.

Holden is a village of intentional community.  A place where we work, live, and dine together.  It is a place where it is common to wear ridiculous costumes.  Where all are welcome.  Where Sasquatch lives.  Where hilarity is a cornerstone of the community.

During my residency, I will primarily be editing and composing my dance-u-mentory of  my hike.  I will also be training on my silks which are rigged up in the Village Center, and dancing outside in the snow whenever inspired.

At the end of the Residency, I will have a showing of my film project, and once I return to the world of fast internet, I will be able to post it for everyone to enjoy.

Stay tuned for more updates!
