IN MY BODY a lifelong dancer, choreographer, and performance experimenter. A close partner with sound, silence, and word. IN MY MIND a writer, a songwriter. All my effort and ear is bent, twanged toward overlapping arcs of listening and creating. The songs: others, mine, mine, others. I’m taught by them. IN MY HANDS instruments, crafts to navigate, maps to decipher, landscapes and laboratories of unending allure and resonance. New loves, old loves. I’ve been dancing to them since day one. Now a brave, bewildered musician. I’m going deeper in.
I head up to Burlington today for art-making with friends – rehearsing a new dance work with Paul Besaw – along with other VT luminaries Chong Ho Kim, Avi Waring, Willow Wonder, and Matt LaRocca. Come see what we are up to on Friday August 9 at 3:00pm at Cohen Hall at UVM. And will be performing with Ted Looby, Gus Ziesing, Nick Leichter, Patricia Julien, and Jom Hammack in two events Friday and Saturday – a Robot Dog Studio session with Tim Lewis and WBKM, and a patio gig, “Clare Byrne Song & Dance Summer Sojourn” – aptly named by Ted! – at The Double E in Essex Junction on Saturday August 10th at 6:30pm.
