At first, I only wanted to make a dance about relationships with inanimate objects. But now I see the cardboard box (the object I randomly chose) as a metaphor for so much more. Things lost (a lost and found box), things of the past (a box of mementos), things deceased (a box of ashes), things not working out (moving boxes), etc.
This video shows the beginning stages of my new piece. Be sure to watch to the end for the big smooch!
