The Sunland Dancers with Tara Jane ONeil
May 11, 2015
this is a newish, unfinished work, it started coming Fall 2014. after doing a residency and showing of this piece The New Museum in February 2015 with myself and Tara Jane I realized this piece is about the, or my own acceptance of death. back in LA I started working through the material with The Sunland Dancers and got a call from my father in March that cancer was spread through his body and he thought he had about a month to live. during the last month of his life, between being with and caring for him, I only wanted to sleep and rehearse. thank you to Tara Jane and all The Sunland Dancers for being with me during this period. my father died on April 20, 2015. Gateway is about the acceptance of death as well as transitions, passing and shifting. this will be the first full length group showing of it.
danced by The Sunland Dancers: Kidd, Jil Stein, Perin Hailey McNelis, Alexa Weir and Lisa Wahlander.
