Choreographer RoseAnne Spradlin (NYC) will develop a new work titled star child (moving over the ground), exploring issues at the heart of contemporary dance: the possibility of internal exhaustion, the dancer’s drive toward self-exposure, and the cycling of the form through apogee and perigee to possible (star-like) collapse.
