BREATH is the bridge which connects our consciousness to nature and life itself. We are continually moving through air, much the same way a fish moves through water. By our breathing we are attuned to the world around us, sharing the air with nature and each other. Our BREATH expresses our inner feelings, our state of well-being, our excitement and even our anxieties. BREATH flows endlessly through all, sustaining us, and allowing us to express life’s nuances.
In ‘…And all good things are yours’, choreographer Brianne Scott examines positive and negative energies that are constantly around us and passing through our lives.
Alison Liney presents ‘Expel’, which draws inspiration from how breath is used to create words.
With ‘Joyful Unfoldings’, Jessica Bryan shows what it means to dance in the moment. With a single breath, at that singular fleeting moment, one can capture a pure expression of joy.
Jennifer Laucella offers ‘All The Animals’, which looks at how day to day life piles on stress, worries, anxieties. But when one takes a step back, we can see just how small we are and our held breath can be released.
MM2 Modern Dance company members are Jessica Bryan, Jenna Faye Eugenides, Kaylee Goodwin, Jillian Ikeler, Jennifer Laucella, Alison Liney, and Brianne Scott.
