I’ve loved connecting with the UVM Recital Hall with this version of Appalachian Spring. The dance happens in the whole space.
I’ve loved connecting with a strange bedfellow, a hard working ladder, for my new solo piece, Cocoon, in that space.
I’ve loved connecting and unconnecting and reconnecting, remembering and moving with all the people who have been involved in Appalachian Spring, eight years apart: dancers in 2010 Autumn Barnett, John Bennett, Patrick Ferrari, Ellen Smith, Julie Peoples-Clark, Dave Clark, and Ella Clark. Paul Besaw, Dancers in 2018 Winnie Looby, Chong Ho Kim, Marc Wennberg, Nicholas Leichter, Avi Waring; conductor Mike Hopkins in 2010 and Yutaka Kono in 2010. All the tremendous musicians in the Burlington Chamber Orchestra including Steve Klimowski, playing clarinet with me on Yvonne Desportes’ Birth of a Butterfly.
