Rehearsal with the solo|soul collaborators:
Karen Jamieson, Don Kugler, Josh Hite, John Korsrud


Tone of the room – creatively open, relaxed, trusting, and accommodating

The questions:

  • how do you balance dance and video so one is not taking the other over?
  • how can you show the internal dialogue through video projection?
  • how can you change the space of the theatre and bring the research space with?
  • does the creation of the soul emerge out of the dialogical, or do you find it by going inside?
  • what is the connection between the energy body the soul?
  • what are the distinctions between each dialogical relationship? (with dance collaborators)

The brainstorm comments:

  • there is a desire to work within the proscenium theatre but to subvert it
  • in dialogue with Serge: Karen followed instructions, Margaret: the material came from another realm, there was a change that occurred, Josh: an idea came forth, Karen did it on another level
  • desire to show the process of solo|soul non-magically
  • the idea that the soul can’t be represented through a solo

Don Kugler, dramaturge:

  • what’s the relationship to the research?
  • are you documenting? Summarizing? Just doing a solo?


  • it’s about the research – the idea of solo, changed
  • it’s representing an act of remembrance


  • what is the referencing for? To share history? Why and how is the referencing there?


I listen, and through this am incited to dream up creative applications for the choreography that I am currently working on.
