Combining backyard dance improvisations, an investigation of the divided self, a love of the documentary Man on Wire (2008), and research into WW I and the start of the Modern Century; I marked a line across  the width of Alberta St.  during Last Thursday and attempted to dance and stay on it, back and forth, for 3 hours in the busiest month  of Last Thursday.

The Line (2009)

solo dance experiment

The line, the trenches, the middle way, the divided self,  the end of naïveté, Nijinsky and dance at the turn of the 20th century.

Last Thursday on NE Alberta St

and First Thursday on NW 13th St,

Portland, Ore.

August and September 2009
