Upcoming Projects- “The Baroque, Anew”
Caroline’s work as a performer, choreographer, and director is informed by her love of dance and history and she continues to keep both feet in the worlds of early and contemporary dance practice. As such she has been creating choreographies that integrate text from period treatises and memoirs and developing a solo work that bridges the gap between historical research and dance practice/performance titled, An Analysis of Beauty, a virtuosic display of baroque and contemporary dance technique. Caroline has recently been invited by Sara Rudner to continue to develop this research and performance practice with the students of Sarah Lawrence College in Spring 2015.
