Today I arrived in Paris.  I am here with the task of passing on some steps and whatever insights I can conjure up into the inner workings of a piece called Uprising (2006) by choreographer Hofesh Shechter.

Over the next two weeks,  with help from my colleague James Finnemore, we will teach 14 students from the Music and Dance Conservatory in Paris how to perform this work.

An interesting side note is that, until now, this piece has without exemption never been performed by a woman.  Today, 8 young woman were initiated into the continuing journey that is Uprising.
