Global Dance Project 2019

Global Dance Project 2019

Opu and Buki
one is slow, one is fast

sound relation
pods and traffic
murmurations and proxemics
cryptic choreography

the edge is lost where we meet
between the vaporous sky and deep midnight sea

to share or not to share
why is the sky blue and the sea midnight

Research Materials
Francis Weller, Wild Edge of Sorrow (Video)

“All these moments and actions have their inner justification. Taken as a whole they reflect the feelings, the passion, or the state which we describe by the use of the one word love...Every passion is a complex of things experienced emotionally, it’s the sum total of a variety of different feelings, experiences, states. All these component parts are not only numerous and varied but they are also often contradictory. In love there is often hatred and scorn, and admiration, and indifference, and ecstasy, and prostration, and embarrassment, and brazenness, [addiction and betrayal].”--An Actor’s Handbook by Constantin Stanislavski

Mpowerdance Project MISSION

Mpowerdance Project Mission

The mission of Mpowerdance Project is to challenge the dominant human-centric view of our place in the natural world, using the interdisciplinary and interactive mediums of dance, art, film and performance. With skill, research, memory and experience, we deliver an encounter that resonates with the wonders found in the wild, exploring the mystery of unity in diversity and diversity in unity.

Mpowerdance Project and collaborators inspire and connect diverse audiences, both locally (San Francisco) and globally, through the GDP/Global Dance Project, an annual choreographic offering.

We encourage deepening relationship to life by respecting and increasing a relationship with the natural world—with balance, sustainability and innovation through dance art and performance and by respecting boundaries and freedom, keeping informed of community and world events.

Global Dance Project 2017: Bennu Footprints

Global Dance Project 2017: Bennu Footprints


Rise in brilliance newborn dancers
children of the ancients
this is the year of magic

Rise in brilliance
twins of symmetry aligning out of chaos
this is the year of triplets
skipping 5-7 beats again like brand new

Comedy of errors baby
slapstick, stooge 1-2-3, zen stick wake up
fool give up upside down

winds of change hummin'
shakin' like a leaf on a tree
rise Bennu rise
rock the dance from the Benben
rock the dance from the primeval mound
