7 Day Dance Festival


Photography: Julliette Machado

Lilianna Kane and Charlotte Sickles get together in Bellingham, Washington, to make a new work.

Pleasure Study I investigates the body’s innate desire for pleasure, both sensory and emotional, through improvisational scores. The work relies on dance improvisation as a vehicle to tap into the body’s intuition and ability to make choices.

Pleasure Study I was scored, set, and directed in seven days during Bellingham Repertory Dance’s “Seven Day Dance Festival” in Bellingham, Washington, in September, 2017.

Performers/Collaborators: Elizabeth Belyea, Lilianna Kane, Derek Loerzel, Caitlin Nelson, Danielle Park, Charlotte Stickles

Art modeling

Painting Demo by Jove Wang (2018)

Lilianna is an experienced model for drawing, painting, and sculpture classes primarily in Columbus and New York City. Kane uses modeling as a meditative practice to inform her dance work. Modeling is embodied research on body subjectivity in relationship to power dynamics in both inter-personal levels and systemic, structural levels. This practice is also part of a life-long goal to de-stigmatize nudity, and celebrate bodies rather than censor them. To book Kane as a model for your art class, click here.
