Watch a recap of the 2016 AMK Creative Residency:

David Brick

“I was able to give myself to the deep, hard work of exploring questions without second guessing if it should be polished or not, coherent or not.” – David Brick

 

 

 

Rosie Herrera

“It has become harder and harder for us to find time to all be together in one space. With one dancer in Sarasota, one in Miami and the other in New York, its been incredibly difficult to figure out how to coordinate our schedules.” – Rosie Herrera
