Needless to say, the word Truth, despite the variances in definition/meaning, can be used when making decisions, to enhance and amplify a better understanding of myself within the collaborative choreographic process.
DOING DRAMATURGY continues to take my practice through a series of essential questions, which I believe has brought forth a flurry of new perspectives on what I think I create and do as a choreographer. The lens of a dramaturg is inviting and yet revealing.
Challenging as the process is to really dissect what we do as makers, I believe it invites new knowledge, and I am able to decide on what I intend to do and not do.
Choreography is a multifaceted layer of creativity, which I believe surpasses the action of simply creating movement phrases.
Dramaturg: Yuliya Hudoshnyk (Ukraine)
“I imagine Harriet carrying out shows that speak to the interplay
between global and local, and raising topics of global citizenship versus maintaining one’s heritage. She has an excellent advantage to work with people who are carriers of bodily wisdom from different corners of the planet, rich in its diversity, which may be expressed in different ways and
displayed in her shows (if it is not yet)”
“Her practice is all about fluidity, erasing borders, creating common space by moving together, which can be translated into her artistic work on different levels”
Yuliya Hudoshnyk, (2023).
