We created a new piece in one month for National Choreography Month (NACHMO) Boston 2014. Drawing from movement and themes we've been exploring since September 2013 with "Tether" we showed in progress at the Third Life Choreographer Series (being tethered to something or someone in your past, present and future... even in thoughts imagined as telephone wires, touch points that are reacted to).
Here is footage from the tech rehearsal and photos from the performance.
It’s here. Join us. National Choreography Month (NACHMO) Boston showcases the vibrant creativity of our dance community. A total of 24 emerging and established choreographers will be presenting new work across two evening performances.

NACHMO is your yearly choreographic kick in the pants conceived by Sharyn Korey and Anna Brown Massey. We spur dancers to choreograph by challenging you to work against a deadline. You've got one rollicking month from January 1st to the 31st to forge new steps and complete your piece. Your work doesn't have to be good, nor does it have to be public, but it does have to be done. For this one month each year, we put aside our excuses, our hesitations, and perhaps our day jobs to work intensely on making dance. Through the communal Nachmo blog, social media, and live events throughout January, we provide opportunities for individual artists to network and collaborate.
