Portrait (1996)

share:

“displayed a luscious, lyric femininity that could have been seen as a paean to women everywhere.” -Back Stage

In Portrait, five women dance the inner life of one woman. With its haunting, yet affirming score, the journey of creating this work reveals an astounding reality: “Balance in life is not a static repose or rest, but rather a shifting equilibrium within acceptable parameters.” Such is the life of a woman.
