Rehearsals start for "Motion Line Form" this week

I set up the  ribbon struts last week in a high wind…some beautiful moments when the ribbon got away from me and sailed through the air (that will be another installation piece). Sam Kelley, exhibitions manager at the Brattleboro Museum,  helped me wrangle them back into place.  Today I'm completing the prep for starting rehearsals which means gathering the last of the materials, finishing up my rewinding devices for the ribbon and sewing various tool belts that the dancers can use to hold the ribbon. 

Tuesday morning I drive south and meet choreographers Candace Salyers and Dahlia Nayar on site at the museum to continue developing the movement sequence for the  installation. I'm excited to be working together on site after a big hiatus from the fall ( it had something to do with these long Vermont Winters!). Hoping its won't dare snow this week as far south as Brattleboro. (Performance is 4pm Saturday May 9)
