Restless Creature has been quite an adventure for me as both artist and person. As my first major project since arriving in New York, Restless Creature has enabled a number of exciting firsts for my career, namely my first presentations at Jacob's Pillow, The Joyce and the Royal Opera House. After a year of creation, I am eager to share the language that I have created for Wendy with audiences throughout America and the globe. In recent months she has uncovered so many new and intriguing facets of her incredible self. To have witnessed the evolution of one of our greatest artists first-hand has been a most immeasurable gift.
I recently met with Wendy Perron to discuss Restless Creature for her Choreography in Focus web interview series at Dance Magazine.
I got to know Wendy P. about 10 years ago when I worked with Peter Boal on his own project, Peter Boal and Co. (He chose me to be part of his 3 member group). Wendy P. was not only the editor of Dance Magazine back then but still choreographing dances of her own, and she created a beautiful solo for Peter for his show.
Over the past 10 years, she has become a mentor and a trusted guide for my own exploration into contemporary dance. She has incredible wisdom and an amazing eye. She's one of my go-to people for advice on all new ideas.
So grateful she's in my life and supportive of my new endeavors. She's one of a kind ...Love you Wendy P. !
