Alexandra Beller & Lucy Kerr - 06/01/15

Sometimes the producer has more say and the director takes what he is given. On other occasions,
you don't see the producer very much and the director is the one who it is all about. ---Julie Harris

Dancer/Choreographer Kristi Spessard

Alexandra Beller has recently learned the dances of her children, in the hope that it would bring
her closer to what it feels like to be a human with no stories, no critiques, no formulas, no
delusions, no denials, no successes or failures, no ego. The result is a new evening-length work
for four remarkable dancers called ‘milkdreams’. They present it to the public in June
at La Mama for a full two week season.
