In September, Alex Masi and I traveled to Tampa FL to be in residence with a group of beautiful and inspiring dancers at the University of South Florida. We re-worked feasting uncertainty, a 2006/2007 dance that earned a spot on the ACDA gala in South Central. Andee Scott drove the residency from her end, and Alex, along with Laura Mobley (USF grad), danced the group into a new configuration of feasting over the five days we were together. We took the second section from the original group to a duet, fine-tuning the essential edginess of the dance. Here are a few photos that include Alex and Laura; more to come of the dancers this week as they near performance. If you know anyone in Tampa/St. Petersburg, send them to the theater on USF campus: November 6-8 and 13-15.
