Erica Rebollar/Rebollar Dance



Biography

I make work that poses to the audience a series of questions. The process of questioning, unraveling meaning, and exploring answers is why I work. Dance is my opportunity to my audience and myself. I have agreed to let the audience into me and me into them because I am dependent on this close relationship.  I seek to communicate and to create an initial, human bond.  The best surprises are in small ways, original ways of thinking.  I seek innovation and open behavior to impact my audiences intimately, immediately.
 
I choreograph movement about themes of conflict without attempting to heal the polarity between thought and action.  I am curious as to how minor and seemingly random encounters can create a powerful inclusive narrative.  I weave vignettes together to serve as layered information toward a complex whole. The discreet battles within movement, sound, and memory excite my processes.  Rather than tell a static thematic tale, I form multi-layered works that deal with problem solving. In this way, I seek to guide viewers and myself through a challenge of multifaceted knots.
