Through a program organized by Mocean Dance in Nova Scotia, I participated in the Choreographer Lab, Exploration and Research in May 2015. I spent a full week working intensively with two professional dancers and mentors Sara Coffin (of Mocean Dance) and Larry Lavender (of the University of North Carolina) to research and create choreography based on heartbeats and heart emotions.
Travel for this project was made possible by the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council Professional Artists Travel Fund.
Dancers Kara and Oliva have written about their experience on the Mocean Blog:
