“This Series:Sneeze was inspired by recent airplane travel between Maine and Texas. I was sitting near a person who sneezed a lot. I thought about slow motion films of sneezing and the contained environment of the plane. Yes, it’s all a bit disturbing but also quite fascinating.”

“This series was inspired by my time in Austin, Texas. Exploring the Lady Bird River and energized by the Austin community of people who play on and around the river even when it is 100 degrees outside in September. As well as the huge bat population and the fabulous river boat tour I took at sunset to see them fly.”

Project Bandaloop brings to audiences performances of aerial dance. Under the direction of Amelia Rudolph, it creates a blend of dance, sport, ritual and environmental awareness. Inspired by the possibilities of climbing and rappelling, the choreography draws on aerial, vertical and horizontal movement to craft dances, many site-specific. The work explores the relationship between movement and gravity and stimulates viewers’ awareness of their natural and built environments. The dancers, climbers and riggers have enjoyed bringing their form of aerial dance to new audiences and have performed for close to half a million people at major city landmarks and outdoor sites such as Yosemite Falls, California, USA.” Wikipedia
