I was honored to work with guest choreographers Rachel Bernsen and Melanie Marr as well as guest musician Taylor Ho Bynum as part Anthony Braxton's visit to Alabama from Feb 22-25, 2015. Along with 8 UA dance majors, we learned about Braxton's Pinetop Aerial Musical language system and explored the connections of improvisation with music and dance. The structure for the performance was learned and rehearsed over 3 days for a planned performance on Feb 25, which unfortunately was cancelled due to weather related issues. The video was of a rehearsal of the work. The password to watch the video is Pinetop2015
