Dreams of Affection

 

This dance-for-film piece, directed by Jessica Gomula-Kruzic, is based on Broughton’s poem Always, Ever, and Only. The choreographer, Nicole Zvarik, says she designed the dance phrases as “a dream like interpretation of my own experience of unexpectedly falling in love with a woman. The poem was so true to how the process unfolded for me. So I used his work and told the story, this time from a woman’s point of view.” The piece is set in the hills of a local nature preserve, the Djerassi Resident Artists Center, mimicking the setting of Broughton’s The Bed and uses some body-landscape techniques inspired by Broughton’s film Erogeny.
