New York-based choreographer Sidra Bell intertwines nuanced phrase work, supple spines, and movement research in service of collaborative language building. Lauded as thought provoking, identity focused, and exploding with creativity by the Pittsburgh Examiner, Bell creates space for the generation of shared vocabulary, utilizing structural systems that build work capable of both looking forward and referencing itself. Deeper Inscription has been sustained in part by The Boston Foundation in partnership with The Barr Foundation.
