  • The Genius of the Crowd

    We are each experts of our own life stories. Our bodies serve as the physical repository of our lived narratives. The book of our humanhood includes chapters in relationships, service, work, education, gender identity, citizenship, social beliefs, political ideologies, religion, sexuality, and many additional essays. While we each have our own unique experience with regards to these chapters, there is one common experience, and that happens to be the human experience; our humanhood. Inspired by "Men in the Cities" by artist Robert Longo and the words from poet Charles Bukowski's "The Genius of the Crowd", this contemporary dance piece is an evocative illustration of group allegiance and self-compromise.

    Dancers: Ashley Rivera, Isabelle Talbert, Sharleen Van Patten with Lyllandra Doelitzsch, Kylee Guidry, and Amanda Stubblefield

    Soundscore created by: Aaron M. Wood with music from Mike Wall "Hold Still", "Rapa", "Heavens Dust", Hecq "Lost", and Charles Bukowski "The Genius of the Crowd."

    This work was created in 2006 as a part of my thesis research at the University of Utah. It has three sections and runs 11 minutes in length. The piece was selected to represent the Department of Modern Dance at the 2007 ACDA Northwest Regional Conference. At this conference it was then selected by the adjudicators to be performed in the final gala concert. Since then, I have revisited the work multiple times and will continue to present it as a means for gay awareness.
