SHIFT: An interview with guest artist Leslie Scates

Check out our newest behind-the-scenes video about SHIFT, the premiere of three new dances on September 15-16 in Decatur, Georgia and November 2-3 in Houston, Texas. This interview is with guest artist Leslie Scates and she talks about some of her process in creating this piece, and her thoughts on improvisation and dancemaking.
An interesting tidbit, she originally came in with the idea of making a piece about communication among women, so it was called HEaRD, but then she found it focused more on group dynamics especially in the face of fear, so the "a" was dropped and it is now called herd.
Tickets for SHIFT are available online back on the website, COREdance.org.
