Open Stage Amsterdam @ Dance St.

Last updated on March 28, 2014

I’ll be performing this Saturday at an event sponsored by ConfiDance @ Dance St., Amsterdam. Thanks to Celia Grannum for inviting me to participate! Checkout this article on Celia at


It was wonderful dancing at this event last night. I performed a 20 minute improvisation with generous accompaniment provided by Nicholas Mishoe, who agreed to participate at the very last moment. Originally I had planned to dance without music but I arrived to discover that Nick, in addition to being a dancer, formerly with the Boston Ballet, is also a musician. We agreed that most of the piece should be done in silence with occasional (and preferably, at times, unrelated) punctuations of sound, melody and dissonance.

Patrick was in the public and captured some video:
