Black Grace

human language

“As social creatures we seem to complicate the very thing that was designed to capture, articulate and communicate our deepest thoughts and feelings.  Language.  From a simple scenario I extrapolated gesture and movement patterns common to a particular social situation and created a physical language that I used to respond to my sources of inspiration.  Human Language is also an unexpected reaction to having females in my studio after working for years with only male dancers.” – Neil Ieremia


Human Language is as sharp as citrus, sweet as mango, pretty as pawpaw and an ideal entrée.
