Lost… Are We? demonstrates the unsettling feelings that arise in our brain. We walk through life showing others the outskirts of ourselves, portraying the best sides of one another. This piece pushes that comfortability by reflecting and portraying that each individual has something they are going through, and that the people around us helps to distract us from these problems. But with all the support we may have, do these feelings ever go away?
I would like to thank Armando Duarte for mentoring me through this choreographic process, and throughout my choreographic journey. I would also like to thank department chair, George De La Peña for his support throughout this process. Thank you to my dancers, Sidney Cowles, Margaret Steimel, and Alyssa Alber for assisting me in bringing my vision into life. Lastly, thank you to my parents, friends, and family for the constant support and encouragement.
