This dance played with the various sounds that can be made with the human body. The piece began with dancers centered around a fire, which gave birth to the overall concept for lights. The lighting began with a warm isolating glow, and eventually grew to be bright, open and energetic.

This piece highlighted thoughts and emotions that arise when life throws a negative experience at us. The lighting had a harsh, industrial quality to it and incorporated tinty greens and yellows.

This dance stressed the importance of connections among humans and destruction that occurs when certain bridges get burned. The lighting had a neutral lavender quality at the beginning when a connection was established. When the connection breaks, the lighting shifted to cold, industrial textures. As the piece progressed, red crept onto the stage to emphasize the loss and instability.
