The review is out for a performance I was a part of a couple weeks ago. The InHale Performance Series, which is held at the Chi Movement Arts Center in Philadelphia, provides an opportunity for emerging choreographers to present their work. I performed Falling Still with the choreographer Melissa Chisena. The music was composed by her partner Jonathan Cannon. The duet was born in 2008, and was the first time Melissa and I had the opportunity to work with one another. The continual separating and coming back together with a kind of magnetic attraction, is reflective of the path our long term friendship has taken. Three years later, I was excited to revisit the piece. It of course evolved a bit and even featured a new ending.
Below is a video reel of the most recent performance which features some nice clips of our duet. Click here to view the piece in its entirety, when it was originally performed in 2008 as part of Norristown Dance Fest.
