Skirt Prelude

Premiered July 2012

American Dance Festival

Choreography: Tammy Carrasco

Music: Giuseppe Verdi

Performers: Tammy Carrasco


This work explores a series of female idealogies through theme and variation in movement. With my grandmother's green skirt, which I found in the back of her closet, I explore my personal feelings towards the expectations placed upon me in terms of gender expression and sexuality. In the performance of this work, I address the tension that exists between women who coexist in a household comprised of three seperate generations.
