dawsondancesf / Richard Howell
Dawson's "birds eye view" is collaboration with jazz musician Richard Howell.  First performed at the Black Choreographers Festival in March 2014, this work explores Dawson's affinity for jazz, as well as the broader relationship between music and movement.  Presented first with an original score by Howell, Dawson then worked to choreographically interpret Howell's creation.  Hearing the essence of a journey in Howell's composition, Dawson sought to incorporate a sense of travel into "birds eye view," giving the work a temporal trajectory, with the hope of arriving at a clear destination.

In a second collaboration" in this moment" with Richard Howell, Dawson flips the creative order in which he and Howell have previously worked.  In this instance, Dawson composed highly structured and specific movement first, to which Howell then created a new score.  Working from the deep trust they established in their first collaboration, Dawson and Howell imbue "in this moment" with a playful synergy and the goal of articulating each other's artistic vision.  With both "birds eye view" and "in this moment"," Howell's live jazz music adds an improvisational nature to each performance; played slightly differently each time, the music requires the dancers to respond to the shifting musical nuances each night.
