I was fortunate to dance in Alice Gosti’s ambitious project How to become a partisan, which first premiered in Seattle in April 2015. The durational performance, mined sound and movement material from the historical events of the partisan movement in Italy during WW2. Individual singers, choirs, and other musicians filled the space with rich and reverent sound. I was one of seven dancers part of the “herd” exploring the spaciousness of Saint Mark’s Cathedral through individual and group movement.
Protecting the Herd is the sister performance to How to become a Partisan, with attention to the herd of movers in a different performance venue/environment.
