Harbinger Study, 2020
from Praise Dances
Harbinger is a precursor to Pine as an early exploration of story-telling through movement. My filmmaker Jack and I became intrigued by our sense of Nicole as a mysterious loner who encounters a stranger, and so we moved on to pursue this characterization further with a few more elements in a longer study, Pine.
