Fabula is a theatrical dance piece that was conceptualized through a series of illustrations.
It first premiered at the San Diego State University Studio Theater in October 2018.
I wanted to make a piece that blended my interests in dance, theater, fashion, costume design, video installation, movement and story. I wanted it to be electric by the images it presented with incredible texture and color. I wanted the piece to be spectacular.
I wanted to construct a world of dream and symbol. I believed that the visuals for the piece would present themselves through a continuous drawing practice. My drawings often play with surreal landscapes and unbelievable situations, fantasy, contorted bodies, incredible movements, impossible architecture and dreams.
To find the choreographic movement for the piece I believed that a way to achieve this was to have improvisational dance sessions by myself; to find movement qualities and gestural significance which I then situated into phrases and scores learned and explored by each of the performers and me.
