keeping up the ceremonies

A couple weeks ago I had the wonderful opportunity to be a visiting artist at the School of Visual Art and Design at Alfred University in upstate New York. For a moment I thought I was on my way back to Greece (photo below?!) via an unexpected route! I performed Sanity Ceremonies, did some teaching, gave a formal lecture (yikes!) and got in a wee bit of research for new projects. Danny Davis, my beloved lighting designer/tech director/co-conspirator arrived with bundles of gel and made the magic happen. We worked dawn to dusk! Teaching composition to the dance students was a highlight, and rehearsing in gorgeous studios looking out over white mountains was a dream come true for my southern soul.  Lots of gratitude for new friends, lovely hosts, hanging with my dear collaborators, and for dance taking me into deep snows and new territories.
