I'm currently in residency with members of my company, Schoen Movement Company, and professional dancers in Tunisia on a new piece titled Here We Are. We are a diverse cast of different cultures, language, and dance training, and this piece is about coming together to find how differences make all of us better. From working together the past week, I can tell you I love these dancers! They are beautiful humans — so available and generous. I can't wait to share our collaboration with the world! 
 

Tune into the Livestream broadcast of our performance filmed and facilitated by DanceMotion USA, by clicking HERE on Saturday, October 14 at 2:00pm EST.
