In Lieu of Flowers
In Lieu of Flowers is a solo commissioned by Miami Light Project as part of Here&Now Festival: 2013.
It is an abstract dance performance, influenced by the ephemeral. Its structure mirrors the stages of a flower's life cycle, used as a metaphor to epitomize transient human life. The music is composed by Terre Thaemlitz for the album Interstices, which uses iconic songs by singer Nina Simone, spliced and edited to hear remnants of the singer's inhalation and exhalations.
The solo was expanded into a trio presented by Toronto's Outreach and Exchange Strategy, which toured New York City, NY and Toronto, Ontario
