January 7th, 2012: 8:00 pm at Yoga Soup: NECTAR: HOME
Weslie and Tina premiere a remake of "Grit." It evolved into an entirely new work! Fun stuff. Dancing in vintage bathing suits/caps, idiosyncratic movement, relationship rich, deeply psychological and walks the edge between scary and hysterical. Feedback? Folks LOVED the work.

Both Stephen and Misa premiered new works! Caravan and Paint my Wrinkles Red!

SonneBlauma shares the stage with New York choreographers
While we were there - a bit of guerrilla style movement art in the streets and in museums - unannounced and uninvited, which is always a bit of a rush when on the quest to "unframe art" and bring to places and spaces one might normally not encounter.
June 4th, 7:00 pm The Electric Lodge, Venice Beach, CA, MAX10
Misa performed Unzipped as a solo integrating the audience seating folks on stage and random chance integration of a poetess.

Pure bliss to be backstage and chat it up with old friends and new friends and even friends who live merely miles away you never see because of the intensity of juggling so many occupations and tasks as working class artists. Double bliss to view the other works on the programs from the wings and the sleepover with giggles long into the night at Noelle of Rubans Rouge Dance Company's home.
