Intimacy Lost: The Living Art Gallery
Emotions Physical Theatre
This performance at the Rockland Center for the Arts was commissioned for a celebration of Pride month for the LGBTQ+ community. This immersive dance performance involved exhibits that came to life through hip-hop, ballet, and contemporary dance exploring ideas of gender and sexuality.
Elizabeth choreographed Backbeat in March of 2018 to be performed on two pre-professional programs: Adagio Ballet Trainee Program and Annapolis High School's Dance Department. Elizabeth used the music as inspiration for the piece. She wanted the dancers to feel like they were being controlled like a puppet by the unruly, syncopated rhythms.
