Silt is a subtle look at how personal ideas about oneself can get lost in the sweep of life. With an eye towards what is created through erosion and loss, the work explores the blunt edge that exists when textural dynamics collide, and the stream of movement that is altered through these collisions.

Press Reviews
"This dance essentially poses a question: How does so much in life drift away from us? It concerns loss of self, yes, but in such an engaging way (the dancers shake off the silt) that only the program notes make it clear what the subject matter really is. Still as the six dancers slowly and individually pull away to sit at stage back, or drift into the wings, we see this as a movement metaphor for inexplicable change and new surroundings, a theme that affects everyone."
