One Thousand Paper Cranes

I recently found this early video of my choreographic work with young people. The dancers and I worked with structured improvisation, abstracting narrative ideas, and set choreography for this piece.  I utilized a story most of the children and parents knew from reading it in school that year.

Affiliated with the Creative Arts Studio in Brooklyn, these young dancers performed an evening of work by a handful of professional choreographers at the Triangle Theatre, Long Island University.
