DANCES FOR IMAGINARY PLACES in development for two years, made its premiere at The Painted Bride, October 11-13, 2001. This full evening production developed in collaboration with videographer Carmella Vassor featured video segments integrated into the live performance materials, video components by themselves, a video dance, and video as installation. The dance materials included 10 dances varying in length from 2 to 6 minutes, a site specific dance event that began outside and travelling through the Bride space and a dance video. The work was inspired by dreams, memories, a sense of place, physical dares and personal histories.
