Between 2009-2012 I created these three full-length works. Each one wove together baroque or medieval music with contemporary Duncan-based movement, and sought to create a unified choreography of dancers and musicians. Coming from an expanded choreographic perspective, I was experimenting with how my own artistic voice met the historic work I was involved in. These works were performed in London, Rome, and New York. My current work is shifting in new directions: see research.
Song of the Sibyl (excerpt)
Dance, poetry and music combine in this exploration of the Sibyls myth cycle: Greco-Roman seers and goddesses who were both powerful and prisoners. Cast of singer, actor, dancers, original text Nika Gorodetskaya. Toured in London, New York, CT and Rome.

…choreography is flowing and coherent, evoking recognisable baroque sculptural groupings – for example, a couple of PietásEarly Music Review
La Clausura Sconfinata (The Cloister Without Walls)
Baroque music, Gregorian chant and Duncan-based contemporary dance interweave in this interdisciplinary work exploring the paradoxical richness of inner life within the cloister. Produced at the Art Monastery with funding from the Comune di Narni and in partnership with the Lori Belilove / Isadora Duncan Dance Company (NY) and Cappella Artemisia (Bologna).
