The Joyce Theater's Working Women performances were so cool, because I know all the talented women involved. I've worked with them all before at The Joyce or Gotham Arts or at Jacob's Pillow. I have histories with them, and working at this dance performance was just like photographing my friends. It was wonderful to see some new work by these inspiring artists and also fun to be around them. What can be better than that?
It was particularly interesting seeing such a variety of work all in one evening. And it was great to see an entire program dedicated to work by female choreographers, since they have historically gone under-represented in the dance world. These women are fierce and their is work cutting edge.
