“It’s a moment that I’m after, a fleeting moment, but not a frozen moment.”
- Andrew Wyeth

Christine Colosimo researches dance and phenomenology towards an integrative and engaged movement experience. She focuses on the the lived moment, the élan vital (Bergson), the violent clarity (Hawkins) of movement, building connections between all living creatures. Christine works within the ideology that all things remain possible until a danced action brings them into existence. 

Deeply influenced by the paintings of Andrew Wyeth, her choreography, specifically her piece entitled, Bill's Song, captures the wind, the spirit, the possibility. 

 

Her collaborative work with light painter, Eva Flatcher, has led her to explore the idea that life is a mere fleeting moment that shines brightly and beautifully. In the essence of Kandinsky's synesthesia, her choreography explores the intersection of light, color, and form with movement and the body's perception of each. She believes that, "Without my body, there is no light" and her work is an expression of this belief. 

"I am the absolute source... I could not grasp anything

as existing if I did not first experience myself as existing... the absolute certainty of myself for myself, as the condition without which there would be nothing at all." 

Maurice Merleau-Ponty
