Potential Energies #RollCall!

Christina Soto, Dancer

What #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.

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.

Potential Energies has become the part of my life where I get to return to my roots - usually between the hours of 6 and 9pm! I grew up on classical and modern music and this has been my chance to rekindle that fire. It’s a very similar story to what we are trying to tell with this modern ballet and I think it’s something the creative team and performers can all identify with. This is our chance to do something.
