Abstract

This document traces my imaginative and physical journey through ​The Underground​, a dancemaking process and evening length experimental dance production. It stands as a selected compilation of research between June 2019 and January 2020. In it, I explore acts of self examination, becoming, artmaking in our current age of anxiety, political reflection, Surrealism, and transdisciplinary practice for non-hierarchical dance collaborations between myself and the production ensemble. As the co-creator and director of this theatrical presentation, I facilitate a world in which we are all allowed to exist poetically, transformatively, and responsively to one another and the present moment. The result is a 95 minute performance collage of abstracted physical “short stories” at the Sheila and Hughes Potiker Theater at UC San Diego.
