|Title of the choreography||The Guitarist / Outside-in|
"The guitarist/outside-in depicts the journey of an eccentric individual attempting to find her way in the world. The chair represents all things ‘normal’ and the expectations of others. The dancer attempts to come to terms with these and find ways to co-exist with the world without losing the individuality that defines her.
The guitarist/outside-in was first conceived as a study of the cubist painting by Pablo Picasso. Elements of this initial conception remain in angularity, some of the gesture language, and the psychology of the cubist movement’s unique world-view."
|Year of birth||1960|
