our way (2021)
By me in collaboration with the dancers
Danced by danced by Nell Mancini, Sara LaPadula, and Stephanie Schramm
University of Massachusetts Amherst
“our way” is a physical distillation of Adrienne Rich’s poem Diving into the Wreck. By researching the intersection between the prosodies of dance and language, the work reflects the way Rich engages the body of her reader through descriptive language, sensory imagery, and other literary devices.
