Collected Remnants developed over the summer through a movement investigation with company members, which was then used to stage the piece on two summer intensive programs, Summer Dance at George Mason University and the International Contemporary Dance Intensive in Chicago.
Company Danzante premiered the work at Dance Bethesda in March 2014. Collected Remnants explores the physical and emotional imprints we leave behind. The experiences that shape us leave a residue that when collected expose traces of ourselves. The impress-ions we make, the footprints we leave, and the connections we seek reveal our inner truths and vulnerabilities.

Here & Now is a new work that investigates the complexities of habits, good and bad, that define the patterns we set in our lives and limit our results. The work presents variations on this theme, illustrating how changes in our actions cause unique effects. Through sounds and visuals, Arturo Garcia's Arlingotn based dance company, Danzante, explores the emotional connections we have to our habits, the impact our habits have on our relationships, and reflects upon the emotions that influence our habits.
