“Lost and Found” with Awake Dance Company where the piece was very challenging physically but at the same time allowed all the dancers to perform their signature contemporary movement qualities. Also recreation of Rudolf’s Laban “Nacht” left me unforgettable memories when working on the piece as well as performing in front of audience who applauded us with a standing ovations each night.
What is the rehearsal process like for this piece?
It is quite an interesting experience to work with such a small cast of people who I never knew or worked with before and collaborate within such a short period, nevertheless very enjoyable.
Who do you play in this piece?
I perform the daughter’s character who is someone who doesn’t believe in everything she is told – she understands other people panic regarding the coming end of the world however, she filters that message through and tries to focus on the fact that family is together. She does have her weak moments and let her nostalgia to take over from time to time however when that happens – she allows herself to fall under her mother wings.
How does it compare to other pieces you’ve been involved in?
Most of the pieces I was involved in were strongly contemporary dance based where in case of current work which is physical theatre orientated – its slightly different working process that I am used to. We also we have an opportunity to work with a few props which is also something I am not as familiar with until now.
Describe the show in three words/phrases?
Situational Paradox – good fun – unusual.
What are you looking forward to most about performing at Emerge?
I am definitely looking forward to working with C-12 Dance Theatre and receiving feedback. Also the opportunity of performing for few nights in the row and to take classes led by other artists participating in Emerge Festival.
