ODALISQUE

Performed at Winter Dance Fest, Tannery World Arts and Cultural Center 

February 2018

Odalisque is a solo dance piece exploring the female as muse and visual subject. Taking inspiration from classical and modernist paintings of women in repose, the solo is an effort to reclaim renderings of the female form and animate her with agency. The solo integrates choreographed material and improvisation, posing the question of what it means for the muse to be the subject of her own making.
