She Stood At the Door and Knocked 
(Asterial Dance, World Premiere, 55 min) 
This work is comprised of 5 different stories that highlight women caught in the midst of life's transitions. Using scenic elements, freestanding doors, closed and open opportunities are represented and the characters explore their responses to them. The women battle internal hurdles of hesitation, longing, and fear as well as external obstacles and adversity. Each experiences a shift in feelings and situations becoming stumbling blocks to empowering steps forward. 

The piece raises the audience to question...
How do we know if a door is meant for us to pursue, enter, or leave alone? 
Does our own anxiety or the amount of challenge we face mean anything directionally? 
How long is long enough to pursue a closed door before letting go and moving on? 

(NSquared Dance, 2015, 10 min)
