Mexico: As you know, I had no idea what I was going to create in Mexico before I got to my residency with 360 Xochi Quetzal.  However, when I arrived to this beautiful land and culture, it was as if every step I took was meant to be (except when I twisted my ankle walking down the street in Mexico City at the end of my trip:-(…….But up until then, especially in Guadalajara and Lake Chapala, every person I met was divinely placed there so that I could realize my vision of teaching and choreographing.  Through the domino effect of introductions… I ended up meeting Ailyn Arelles who produced my site specific Piñata installation called “Temporario Contemporánea”  located at her amazing house in Guadalajara.  I also taught a 4-day dance workshop at the Cultural Art Center of Jalisco the largest dance studio in Guadalajara.

Here are the dancers, musicians and assistants who helped create 6 movement installations throughtout the space: Temporario Contemporanea(more photos to come!)
