Overwhelmed by You
Music: Max Richter and Nick Cave
Lighting: Burke Wilmore
Costumes: Gregory Dolbashian
This piece was created for Dance Theater Wokshop’s 2009 SummerDANZ festival as part of the Emerging Choreographers portion of the festival. The piece is designed to be an examination of the tumultuousness of maturation. The ensemble functions as one voice, one mind, one body, going through an intense and dark process of settling with who and what it is becoming. It is about identifying the changes that occur within us as we grow and deciding if we want to embrace,reject, or just flat out succumb to who and what we have become.
First Premeire: SummerDANZ, Dance Theater Workshop NYC July 2009
