‘It has no permanent shape’ is a work in progress for @adaptationsdancetheater to be fully completed and premiered July of 2018 at ADT’s annual Bring it Home concert. (Performances are July 6th and 7th) Started work on this piece for my Grandmother Mable O’Hara who passed away earlier this fall, just shy of her 100th birthday.
The piece is greatly inspired by the movements and mind of Mable as an old woman and the memories she has of being a young woman. It also pulls on themes of grief and celebration of the continued, however changed, relationship we have with loved ones that have passed. This is explored in connections between dancers and the movements themselves. 📷 @shellseafineart thank for capturing terrific moments of these generous women at ADT’s Dance Maui @nicolejhumphrey @cadersc @lweatherlarson @amelialani @puremotionzdance27 @jessii.b #dancemaui2017 #adaptationsdancetheater #ithasnopermanentshape #danceyourheartout #grandmother
