Widows, Temporarily is a short dance film I created for the Artist, Interrupted national conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. It premiered last weekend at the “Initial Impressions” dance concert which included 26 dance artists who each explored a different letter of the alphabet under a time limit of 1 minute and 30 seconds. My letter was W and I focused on “women, waiting, war, wives, wishing”, and of course, “Widows…Temporarily.”
Special thanks to my friends and fellow military spouses: Melissa Baker, Veronica Hovander, Brittany Starr, and Erica Constancio for their work and willingness to create the film.
