It seems like such a long time since I’ve had the chance to update my blog. I’ve been focusing my energies on creative and research projects which are finally coming to fruition.
My upcoming piece Immanence: Privileged Instants in Space-Time is in the rehearsal stage at the National Museum of Dance Swyer Studios. We’re working on the section that includes Te Tumu (the foundation). The 50 minute conceptual dance performance will premiere at the Saratoga ArtsFest on June 9th, 2012 at the National Museum of Dance. The music and sound design will be scored by the talented Mikaël Mulholland.
It’s a real delight to be working with a cast of dancers after a ten year hiatus from choreography and performance. I enjoy the camaraderie, energy, enthusiasm, and collaborative creative process.
Another wonderful collaborative project I am working on is the Master of Arts in Learning and Emerging Technologies, under the direction of the lovely Dr. Diane Gal. My developments include the core Advanced Design Seminar, and the elective Identities and Communities in Immersive Environments. My colleague Dr. Eileen O’Connor and I are creating a virtual world design showcase for the culminating first year presentations.
I have another few projects in the works, and will comment on them soon, promise!
