I usually like to show work when it’s done and polished. I’ve been in the studio and am going to share a few things I’m finding. They aren’t done. At the moment it’s looking like there may be some choreography, some moving, some talking.
Christine Suarez will be playing a role in my experiment. Direction by Ally Voye and Christine Suarez. Come for the work and stay for the treats and yummy Pieter vibes.
Carmela Hermann Dietrich, M.F.A., is a choreographer whose work is informed by personal history, politics, and the things people don’t discuss in public. Hermann Dietrich’s choreography has been presented throughout the United States and Europe, at The Getty Center, Bootleg Theater, REDCAT, Highways Performance Space, and Los Angeles Central Library to name a few. Hermann Dietrich received her M.F.A. in Choreography from UCLA, where she was influenced by her work with Simone Forti and Victoria Marks. Hermann Dietrich collaborated with Forti from 1998-2007, performing improvisational duets based on the cities in which they performed. “Learning to Speak,” her article about text-based dance improvisation was published in Taken By Surprise: A Dance Improvisation Reader (Weslyan University Press, 2003). She creates duets with longtime collaborator Terrence Luke Johnson, which comedically take on issues of sex, death, and intimacy. Hermann Dietrich has performed in works by Victoria Marks, Christine Suarez, Carol McDowell, and Noga Chomut. Carmela is a certified CranioSacral Therapist with a private practice in Mount Washington.
