Hear what your 2017 Voices Choreographers have to say about working with SCD!
Erin Tunbridge “I’m so excited to be a part of this production. Although I have been working hard to find a way of sharing my voice through dance, Leymis and SCD helped me to realize this through film over the summer,” Erin says. “I’ve always enjoyed working with choreography and with film. Having the opportunity to combine both, and have this work presented during the regular SCD season, is not only bringing me full circle with my most recent professional development, but it is also an honor and my first solid footstep along this new path in my dance and film making career.”
Megan Carvajal“It is an honor to be able to continue to develop and set Where am I on SCD. This piece comes from an extremely personal and honest place; the maturity and life experiences of the dancers will allow this piece to deeply grow and allow me to continue to find meaning.”
“In who us, I morph the piece in subtle ways on each new couple I work with, having originally created the duet on two different casts. The question of how to cultivate a sense of inseparability over a short period of time is one that I will bring to this residency. I am thrilled to return to discover who us on SCD company members and two new couples.”
“It’s an exciting time to be able to revisit my work with SCD on Federico García Lorca,” says Pazos. “After having returned to Granada to further deepen my research on the writer and expand my connection to myself and to the rich, and yet, complex culture of this Andalusian city, I am eager to dissect and reinvent the work which was laid out a year ago.”
Erin Fletcher “In returning to the VOICES show again this season, I plan to indulge in the uniqueness that the creative process of this concert allows. Being selected to expand in an experimental concert allows me the support to push and be really creative, imaginative, spontaneous, and inventive. The freedom allowed, process time with the company, and the creative team is a valued experience. Connecting with dancers and revisiting ideas on the subject is always the strongest interest for me. In the process of the expansion you leave ideas behind, form new directives, and expand characters. Coming in as a director you create challenges for the dancers to emulate thoughts and imagine storylines on the spot. Seeing this exploration is inspiring. The openness of the dancers is the body of the piece.”
