Here's a sample of some of the short works we've created on ourselves and other companies.

Duets D'Amour ranging from the tender to the slapstick, from the joyous to the flirtatious.

2 performers, lengths vary (2 min - 5 min)

Premieres vary (2002 - present)  (See reviews here).

Dogfight A pilot gets chased by a mid-air villain, gets shot down, and gets rescued by an aviatrix.  The couple court, marry and have a baby who grows up, learns to fly, and heads off into the clouds to pursue his own adventures.  All told with puppets made out of silverware to a classical soundtrack. 

3 performers, Aprox. 10 min.

Premiered as part of Thirst Theater, 2006

Not from Texas  -  A cowboy-flavored, swing-imbued, three-part comical hoedown featuring fancy footwork and the music of Lyle Lovett.

8 dancers, Approx. 12 min.

Premiered on Zenon Dance Company, 2009  (See reviews here).

Mermaids  -  A group of young girls (or are they just girls?) give an interview about  strange events that have been happening in oceans around the world.  The action alternates between the bedroom in which they crowd around a computer, and a series of evocative movement-based, text-supported scenes of seas, sailors and swimming.

7 - 20 performers, Approx. 10 min.

Premiered as part of St. Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists J-Term Projects, 2011

Man in the Moon - A sweet duet for forty dance students based on swing and foxtrot styles.  After presenting it in Minneapolis, the dancers were invited to perform the piece in New York City as part of a festival.

10 - 40 dancers, Approx. 5 min.

Premiered at Southwest High School, 2008

At the Beach - A rollicking summertime fling of a dance.

20 - 40 dancers, Approx. 5 min.

Premiered at Southwest High School, 2009
