‘My life in Pieces’ is a solo autobiographical dance project focusing on the last 4 years of Steven’s life and in particular his mental health journey. In 2018 he was in a car accident in which he also lost his partner. During this residency he will be exploring the themes of trauma, grief and mental suffering through dance, music and spoken word.
Professional Contemporary Class

Join Steven for a Company Class where he will share his practice. Steven teaches a release-based class that is comprised of physical full-bodied exercises encouraging efficient use of the body and dynamic performance quality. The class will move through several taught phrases where the energy initiation through the torso creates a complex movement vocabulary challenging the participant’s natural understanding of flow.
