Vowel Town is a work touching upon the things better left unsaid in romantic relationships. Do "little white lies" maintain the peace and bring lovers closer together, or are they the first cracks of a growing divide?

Arms Up/ Eyes Closed
(2 dancers, 4 minutes, 2014)
Arms Up/ Eyes Closed, performed to Stuart Warwick's "Ex-Gay", is much more than a homosexual love duet. The work hones in on the struggle for social and self-acceptance, as well as the conflict felt to show love publicly.

RedBlueGreen, a work set to Radiohead's "Videotape," is a work incorporating a live-feed projection of the performers. During the work, delayed movement of the dancers are projected on a large black scrim that makes it seem as if there are ghost performers - or memories - moving with the cast. This work is a collaboration with video artist Seej.
(13 dancers, 6 minutes, 2013)
ShellCell, an semi-abstract work, homes in on the fastpaced yuppie lifestyle. The choreography is set to the tribal didjeridoo music of Ondrej Smeykal.
(1 dancer, 5 minutes, 2011)
Created as a duet between a woman and her ironing board, Wash reflects the misery of a failed love relationship of a housewife. During the work she hangs out the dirty laundry about her relationship. Set to KD Lang's Wash Me Clean.
(2 dancers, 5 minutes, 2013)
Greener Grasses is a love duet in which a couple fearlessly commits their undying love to one another.
The choreography is set to Ingrid Michaelson's Giving Up.
Shadow Songs (7 dancers, 2 actors; 24 minutes; 2009)
Set to the music of Tom Waits, choreographer Rekoert’s “Shadow Songs” uses seven dancers and two actors to reveal the complexity between aggression and accepted definitions of masculinity. Dressed in bare-skinned suit-inspired costumes and featured in one-sided lighting the performers compete and explore the nuances and dichotomies of manhood.
