Since Fall is turning into Winter, for the next few days, each of us will be writing to give you an update on what we have been up to since our summer adventures! First up is Eliza Larson!
What has Eliza been up to? Take it away, Eliza:
This summer was expansive and exhilarating and exhausting. After driving 7000 miles, performing
at PortFringe in Portland, Maine; the Capital Fringe Festival in DC, and the Southern Vermont Dance Festival in Brattleboro, I attended the Bates Dance Festival where I was able to relish being a student again. Despite some minor injuries, the spring, summer, and fall has had me dancing and teaching constantly.
The sea of movement has parted though, and I’ve just come back West, to regain some equilibrium in my former home of Portland, Or. New projects on the horizon include diving into the dance scene in the Pacific NW, continuing to study Piso Movil with Omar Carrum whenever possible, and exploring the ever growing physical and creative territory of Mountain Empire as we expand to be a bi-coastal company.
