MOUNTAIN was the first dance I made upon relocating the New York City, having recently completed graduate school. My research interest in creating complex choreographic structures collided with an increasing desire to create phrase material that was full of rigor, momentum, and force. I was interested in creating movement that felt physically impossible, and structuring the material into increasingly complicated, nonlinear structures. The result was MOUNTAIN, a volatile study that represents my continued interest in formal composition and phrase making.
