Most often described by viewers as voyeuristic & quietly captivating, lum was created as a part of the final work for completion of my BFA in Dance at SDSU and was also performed at the Emerge Festival V. The initiation for this piece was a simple curiosity about the possibilities of a single light source. Once I had discovered how one light, with the help of mirrors, could bend space and trans-figure bodies, I continued to work with the inherent visual tones this situation brought with it. The movement was derived from questions about the spine and each dancers’ relationship to the back of her body.
