Exposed: Solo Creative Process

Writing The Dance with Kristina Isabelle



Open Studio Wednesday's May 17th - June 14th


4th Floor Mana Contemporary




Writing The Dance is a glimpse into my studio process.  My goal is to develop a clear body story by writing the work as a continuous journey, a novel of movement to be felt and witnessed weekly. 


I will utilize improvisation, space and theatrical explorations, outside input, plus conversations and/or dances with guests to challenge my creative process and expand the discoveries into variety of performative iterations.


- I am interested in surrounding myself with multiple inputs of inspiration 

- Witness myself from within as well as being witnessed as a mover 

- Dance as an articulate exploration and find the storytelling potential of this body in motion

- Explore what evolves and comes out of my body in response to my current research themes revolving around spirit, spirituality, body politics, race, Audre Lorde, exposure, folk religion



What to Expect:

It begins when it begins at the beginning of the time set

Arrive when you arrive and stay for as long as you'd like

I may be in process so just come in and make yourself comfortable 

Sometimes I will explain what I am doing and sometimes I will not

There will always be a chance to contribute, engage or participate in the practice

Closing conversation will end each day
