My choreographic and creative practice is grounded in the experience of presence, of attending to the body’s immediate sensations, and of being affected by the people and places that surround us. I create interactive environments in which the dance crosses the perceived boundaries between audience and performer. Informed by my training in modern and contemporary dance, my choreography flows between tension and release, momentum and suspension, improvisation and composition, and storytelling and abstraction. I build environments that are responsive to the characteristics of the performance space, whether a theater, a museum, an informal dance space, a nature trail, or a city street.
Kalila Kingsford Smith Dance is the vessel for these choreographic explorations. By involving a number of dancer-artist collaborators, every dance is a product of the creative energies of each performer involved.
