It is always a challenge to adapt a dance intended to be seen in a theater to the studio, where I don’t work with all those special effects. But what I lose in the translation is often compensated for in increased clarity of gesture and form. I love the ‘Picassoesque’ abstraction of her breast into pure geometry.

What is so interesting about working with these dancers, (formerly of the Martha Graham Dance Company) whose bodies have been formed by a discipline such as Graham’s, however they improvise, they still capture something of the choreographer's distinctive style.

I had some of my favorite gymnasts doing somersaults in a circular formation to evoke the internal workings of a watch. The maneuver was not especially difficult for such talented performers: the challenge was in coordinating the timing of each gymnast and the height of each somersault so that they would form a circle in the air.
