Choreography

_i8a6658

Mandy’s compositions take place in a world thick with ritual and altered possibilities. They might happen just about any place – from the theater to the circus to a nearby tree or a coffee shop. She has used her incisive choreographic eye to help bring productions to fruition in partnership with companies from dance to circus to theater to hybrid forms of all stripes. She has an abiding obsession with tying herself in knots, with bird women, with unexpected intimacies, with following the thread of a question way too far, with the subterranean and the monstrous.
