This summer at Idyllwild Arts Camp, my friend Elana approached me and said she wanted me to choreograph a dance for her. She wanted to perform a solo, created by me. I was surprised, but very excited. Elana is a sculptor, book lover, letter writer, and all around bad- ass. She is the most uniquely engaging person I have ever met. As we worked on this project, we decided to shoot it as a dance-film. Elana chose to use music by Beefheart and his Magic Band, and she improvised her own singing as well.
