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
