Turn Signal

A detour away from city limits towards desert winds and rugged terrain, the dancer ventures through color grades of gender exploration and movement-centered introspection.

Under the Tracks

Collaboration with Alia Swersky & Roel Seeber

Edited by Alexander Olivieri

Constructed between 1911 and 1917, the Ballard Locks connects the Puget Sound to Seattle’s upstream lakes. It was originally operated and led by engineer Hiram Chittenden of the US Army Corp, from whom it now gets its name the Ballard Hiram Chittenden Locks. Each year, 40,000 ships pass through the locks that separate the fresh water lakes from the salt water ways of the Puget Sound. In this site-specific work, three dancers explore the line between the past and the present. They slide, scrape and scour the ledge that overlooks the intersection of Seattle's salt and fresh water systems.

The time will come, you will leave places that feel like home, losing people and parts of yourself that you love. Just like a tree losing its leaves, sap seeping from its center, you shed your own skin. Only so you can keep growing, and let this new essence flow from within. You surrender to pain and let go, and everything you let go - comes back to you. Never left, was never lost. Alive in this beautiful dance that only you can feel.
