Potential Energies #RollCall!Mara Mayer, ClarinetWhat #potentialenergies means to me: The deep questioning that many young adults go through in early stages of their careers: I know I have the potential to do this, but will I be able to make it happen? For me this is the central question being explored in our ballet. My #ifnotnowwhen moment: Deciding to move to Costa Rica to work as a research assistant for a primatologist. I believe that creativity is at the core of both the arts and sciences. Not surprisingly, this experience also became great fodder for creating art.

Potential Energies #RollCall!
Name: M. Colleen Hoelscher
Role: Dancer
On #potentialenergies: I believe that every person has the ability to make an “energetic mark” in their lifetime, whether it’s inspiration through art/performance, politics, humanitarian efforts or simply everyday kindness. To me, potential energies means the possibility to create an effect.
My #ifnotnowwhen moment: Moving to NY. My husband and I decided to visit for a weekend and ended up renting an apartment and moving one month later. When something inspires you, grabs you or even scares you, sometimes you just have to take a quick dive and not look back.

Potential Energies #RollCall!Christina Soto, DancerWhat #potentialenergies means to me: Potential energy is all around us, we just sometimes aren’t aware of it. It’s the event of endless possibilities, as if you’re at the very top of a roller coaster before you fall.My #ifnotnowwhen moment: When I was right out of college. I was so hungry, determined and present in my ambition to succeed. That drive is still here today, but its presence shows itself in a different light, a much calmer, more mature one.Join us May 29 for the world premiere! One night only.Tickets

Kivie Cahn-Lipman, Cellist, The Nouveau Classical Project

Having Trevor and the musicians in rehearsals tempers my intuitive habits and calls me to consider how the body changes when an instrument is involved, and it has made me treasure accuracy. Its rare to have hard work and inspiration in equal measure, but when the musicians are present, I’m fed a constant stream of ideas about movement , space and structure that wouldn’t exist if I were working with a music recording. Its been a kind of creative rewiring of circuits for me.
