Embodiments of Silence is both a fully-produced choreography created for the stage (1996)  and the same work transposed for the screen and realized as a screendance (2008).

Abstractly narrative and semi-autobiographical in nature, Embodiments was inspired by early twentieth-century anecdotes about life in the rural South. Characters suggest familial relationships and choreographic choices often reference the completely symmetrical genealogy of the director/choreographer, born on the sun and moon of Libra.

"Haunting, dramatic…absolutely stunning…a vision of freedom and creativity. An epic of kinetic theater. Stunning and intriguing…compelling, overflowing with powerful images and cultural references…a hypnotic dream, doubtless open to many interpretations…fine subtle performance."
