Progress Report by Sharna Fabiano

My creative process is first and foremost about listening. On one level, it is listening to myself. On another level, it is listening for a match between what I feel compelled or inspired to say, and what I see in the world around me.

Creating ‘Love Come Down’ by Alvin Mayes

I am celebrating my thirtieth anniversary in the area by doing some of the things I love most: making dances, working with artists, and singing.

The Music/The Spirit/The Dance: Eggun Speak by Dane Figueroa Edidi

In a cabaret I am myself. There is the dangerous expectation of success of a joke, a note, or a dance, and the reality that you are naked before the audience, and have given them the right to judge the inner most parts of your being.

The DC Cowboys by Kevin Platte

The founder and Artistic Director of the D.C. Cowboys writes about his work with the company, their mission, and their plans.

Local Work (or not so local) by Jessica Hirst

Dana Tai Soon Burgess writes about the development of his new dance piece - Chino Latino - and the work's roots in his experiences as a teenager in Santa Fe.

Tehreema Mitha on “The Scent of My Earth”

Tehreema Mitha writes about her process and interests in creating her company's new evening-length work 'Scent of My Earth".

Meisha Bosma on ‘Shelter’

My work is better when I create on the spot, but the disadvantage is that I usually don’t remember the choreography after it’s been taught. This is sometimes frustrating for the dancers, but we work collaboratively, and I trust them to take responsibility for the material after it leaves my body.
