In advance of the show, we caught up with dancer, choreographer and tour-enabler Emily Smith for some insight into the creative process...and performing in this heat.
Westword: You describe your work as "post" post-modern. What does that entail?
Emily Smith: Post-modern would imply exploration of the material and going into the process. We've kind of taken it beyond that where we use those ideas into the realm of contemporary work. We use those processes but we also think about the aesthetic of the piece and what goes into it as well as the overall process. There's equal an amount of consideration in the process and choreography s well as the final product. It's both product and process oriented.
