In this two-part work set to alternate versions of “St. Louis Woman,” a man leaves a woman for another, who betrays him in turn. In the first section three dancers, representing the woman he leaves, intimate a Greek chorus telling the story as they express her pain. As the piece builds dynamically in the second section, each character experiences a personal sense of loss. The second woman comes back, but no one cares; inevitably she is like the others. Ultimately everyone is alone.

Alone (do you hear us) consists of 3 solos performed within spheres and orbits. Movement motifs and themes are shared but each has individualized variants. The music shares these concepts, with songs that are overlaid. The dancers each must hear their own music exclusively through the mix and the focus they must have in order to carry out their part is in fact a major theme of the piece.

Through the portals is a glimpse into a moment, a transient world of color and relationship- before it dissolves... The work depicts a world of matter and energy, symbolized through color.

These excerpts were taken from the piece performed at Bryant Library Dec. 6, 2015.
