Heather created an evening length dance drama for UNC Chapel Hill's Kenan Theatre Company's 2016-2017 season. This piece explores the intersection of gender, race, and identity through movement and text. Feminist literature served as the source material to give voice to past generations of women and pave a way forward for current and future generations.
Heather teamed up with Rob Hamilton to create the choreography for this multi-media performance. This absurdist exploration of the four horsemen of the apocalypse is a comment on the current state of the planet. The show runs November 16-19 in Swain Hall on UNC-Chapel Hill campus.
pop-up dance events
Heather regularly takes her UNC Chapel Hill modern dance students out of the classroom to explore various sites on campus. They create site-specific improvisational performances for the university community, encouraging student, faculty, and staff to experience their environment in new ways. Structured improvisations challenge students to make performance decisions in the moment while attending to compositional elements.
