Cha the Movement Designer
My movement work marries technical skill, embodied listening, and physical storytelling. It works in partnership, in heightened stakes, in the exploration of the human form, and in the primacy of consent in creativity. It comes in the forms of choreographed violence, intimacy, dance, and more.
It was a joy to create fight moments for the world premiere of the bold, big(top) musical Water for Elephants at Alliance Theatre.
I had the honor of working with one of my heroes, Nilo Cruz -- creating moments of violence and intimacy for a brand new production of his play Two Sisters and A Piano at Two River Theater.
I offered some tools and tips as a fight consultant for Branden Jacobs-Jenkins The Comeuppance at Signature Theatre, and some intimacy best practices for the folks working on Macbeth with Double Features Plays.
... and now I'm taking a much needed rest :)
