‘please come alone: a ballad’ is a study of my solo work in progress ‘please come alone.’
The solo encompasses ideas of privacy and public, and the concept of translation, fragmentation and ballad as a form seen through the lens of stories/myths centered on women.
‘please come alone: a ballad’ is a microcosm of the durational work which will premiere June 2021 in downtown Great Barrington. The 10 minute solo is set to a performance by critically acclaimed vocalist Ganavya. By interpreting the quintessential ballad ‘Lilac Wine’ both dancer and musician interpret lyricism, narrative, and sensation through the lens of corporeal and sonic structures.
