"...this class is the most important aspect of my life here in Brooklyn."

The Lovelies are a compositional improvisation dance company. We show up and pay attention.  What we do in the studios we take to the streets and beyond.  We laugh, we laugh so hard we cry, and we do it in the moment. We practice telling the truth in the midst of the awkward, the dramatic, the comical and the gems it all reveals. 

The Lovelies have been exploring the possibilities of compositional improvisation since 2013. We have had the honor of being presented at Judson Church, Triskelion Arts, The Tank, Brooklyn Arts Exchange, Shapeshifter Lab, in breweries, salons, parks, hotels and many other theatres and site-specific locations.

The Lovelies teach compositional improvisation at Mark Morris Dance Center and the Joffrey Ballet School and present a space residency and split bill series called The Lovelies Present: Slice & Dice.

I set out to write this piece with a new take on things, a different spin, trying to make sense of a world that feels upside down, tie the work we do into the bigger picture and have it all make some coherent sense. I also set out to write a piece covering the March on Washington- how invigorating and moving the march was, a reminder that when a clear commitment is present, SO much can happen. 

Not an easy task(s).

It sure has been a week...
