This October 1st, 2015, I was handed down the Rocky Award, administered by the Philadelphia dance community for collaborative contributions. This award is handed down peer-to-peer, year-to-year and mine was graciously given to me by Hua Hua Zhang. She and I first collaborated in Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers’ Be/Longing in 2014 where she performed the Mask section. Our collaboration has developed into creation for Hua Hua’s upcoming piece Dream of Land, which explores the ego on an internal and external level, through the narrative of a warrior. Many thanks to Hua Hua for this award, and including me in on the process and creation of her work. And thanks to the Philadelphia dance community for being supportive of my work, and creating a feeling of community.
