After a two-month break from the Together Apart: Painted Dances project I was back in the studio recently with Propeller dancers. At this stage of the process, I wanted to get their input to distill down the 100+ painted sketches into the best choices for developing them into large-scale paintings.
I am so thrilled with how this collaboration is evolving! The paintings will eventually be shown as part of an upcoming Propeller performance, in June.
I invite you to watch these 2 short videos (2 mins each) of our recent work together to get a sense of how wonderful it is to be working with them.

Thank you to the City of Ottawa for supporting the Together Apart: Painted Dances project.
