that I am not you
2004 ODC Theater
“…left the most striking impression(s).”
Alan Ulrich, Voice of Dance, 2004
"I cannot forgive your existence, that I am not you."
that i am not you is inspired by the human constant, envy. Envy is a relationship between two people, subject and object. The dancers movement vocabulary draws from metaphors and symbols derived from explorations of envy as a human condition. The sound score combines original music by Jazz Bassist & Vibraphonist Piro Patton and guitarist Christian Konopka, with text excerpts from Joseph Epstein and the essays on envy by Tom Patton.
