"Bucket Bath" by Jules Bakshi

Danced by Jules Bakshi and Elisa Davis

Music by Alexander Mintz

Performed at the COOL NY Festival, White Wave Theater, DUMBO, BK

February 2013

In January I traveled to Goa with my cousin Devika. We spent a lot of time improvising in beautiful places, a way for us to connect to our environment and to each other. It was really special for me to be able to do something creative with Devika. Improvisation can be an intimate thing… it’s hard to dance alone in front of someone for the first time!  We didn’t grow up together, but being family, it didn’t seem scary at all for us to improvise with total abandon—I actually felt encouraged to really let go. These clips are some of my favorites, strung together in imovie (I will eventually become a better editor, I promise). Enjoy :)

Managing Douglas Dunn & Dancers and getting to produce “Cassations” are among the most rewarding things I’ve done professionally. A lot of satisfaction in creative work has to come from within, so it kind of blew me away when the New York Times expressed such glowing gratitude for a work that Douglas, the dancers, and I poured so much time and love into. Here’s the review.

So I wasn’t officially the choreographer on this set, but I did make some moves for the lovely Tze Chun and Marie Janicek (the non-aerialists). Always a great time to work with Mac and the Rex Arrow Films Crew.
