CORE dancers' travel diary

Welcome! to the diary of dancers from CORE Performance Company (CPC) as they travel and work in Chiapas, Mexico as part of the creation of a multi-media dance/performance piece.
CPC is a professional contemporary dance company which performs nationally and internationally from its home cities of Atlanta and Houston, dance pieces created through an intentional collaborative method that deepens the experience of performance through vibrant synergies.

The 6 dancers: Kim, Kate, Blake, Patton, Juana and Jhon, and the artistic director, Sue, will be keeping a journal of their travels and work in Chiapas, Mexico as they continue a cultural immersion begun in Jan. 05. They're going on the trip to continue to their work with choreographer, Susan Prins, and to explore the Mayan people's weaving practices which are informing the creation of a new multi-media work by the company, Corazon Abierto/Heart Open.

So on this site you'll get to see what a "cultural immersion" means to performing artists creating work. This will be a sort of collective blog, but the people posting will identify themselves so please feel free to direct questions to any one or all of them.

HAppy to share the images with ya'll. Just got my computer working again--and am busy making reparis and painting house again, so will be "catching up" with ya'll.

Enjoy, explore, and create!
