vestigial is a work for nine dancers utilizing partnering, strange characters, mathematical rhythmic patterns, voice, and sweaty athleticism. It was developed with the performers through a process of movement creation, solo inquiry, and in-depth conversations that then got filtered through a month of improvisational explorations to discover the structure of the piece. vestigial premiered at the Colwell Playhouse in the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts in February 2018.
