I Am With You examines the trajectory of becoming. A dance in three sections with a cast of thirteen adults and teenagers, I Am With You explores a world of interconnected individuals experiencing states of bloom, transition, and decay. This new evening-length dance reveals the ways in which people foster each other’s work while at the same time relying on their own abilities. The piece incorporates original music composed by long-time collaborator Mike Rugnetta along with Richard Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde.
"Her choreography is always thoughtful and elegantly structured."
