Blue Skies and Yellow Fields


Playing an instrument
develops more parts of the brain
than any other activity.

The score for this dance project was created quite organically, moment by moment,
just as Roger created his experience, and I am thrilled with the result.
An offering to the god of fluid movement that has ruled his life,
Roger Tolle's free form dance represents a response to a dance he performed
at the end of his dance career over 3 decades ago, and to the intervening years of
somatic practice that focuses on movement as a way to agelessness.
