Movement Research Open Podium at DTW, New York City March 9th 2005
- repeated at PickUp Club @ The Sugarfactory, Amsterdam (NL) June 9th 2005

this solo includes specific and subjective narrative imagery and the subject of poetry
which I have mostly avoided in my work before.

through them I approached the aspect of the dance-maker/artist as a seer & traveller between worlds, sometimes present here & there at the same time...
