FULL CIRCLE/THE CLAIRE PROJECT
Full Circle/The Claire Project is a new work and documentary in process inspired by my personal mentor, friend, Chicago dance icon and founding member of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Claire Bataille. Through an intimate creative process with Bataille, current Hubbard Street dancer, Jacqueline Burnett, and former Hubbard Street dancer, Meredith Dincolo, we will uncover more about the power and importance of artistic lineage in creation, the parallels our professional and personal paths share and the broader universality that our story holds. Simultaneously, footage of the process will be compiled for a future documentary.
Our process will culminate with a live performance piece and video documentary slated for Spring/Summer 2019. The work will include an original score by composer/ musician, Tim Rutili, and filmmaking by director, Robert Stockwell.
Full Circle/The Claire Project is supported in part by a 2018 Princess Grace Foundation - USA Special Projects grant and 2018 DCASE Individual Artist grant.
