Histoires d’isolement

“Breathtaking – Wild – Compassionate – Masterwork”

Created during Covid with the Margie Gillis Dance Foundation Legacy Project dancers. These solos and duets spring from the challenges, joys, and foibles of the uncertain world of the pandemic. 

The dancer’s lives were the starting point for each of the works. Subjects explored were: isolation, overwhelming responsibility, the desire to help others, searching for deeper strength, being in suspended time, exploding with frustrations, the insistent passion of spring and new growth, finding the gentle heart, yielding and vulnerability.

The need to dance was essential to us. The moments fl owed out of us with urgency. Margie codifi ed them into ‘crystals’ or ‘poems’, that reveal the essence of our individual and collective lives during the pandemic. The need to know and reveal this ‘New world’ through experiential wisdom was achingly deep.
