January 2007. Dance genius George Pinney‘s masterful collaboration with Jonathan Vanderkolff (composer) and costume designer Scott Jones. Part of the Grow/Move/Change show at Indiana University. The piece was allegedly inspired by my singing a small bit in Ascension, George’s piece from the previous year.

My role? Tenebra, mother of all chaos in the universe! Talk about typecasting—sheesh! Janiece Jaffe played the gorgeous Mother Goddess. A chorus of kids half my age blew us away by not only dancing up a storm, but singing John’s complex score at the same time.
