In her piece Thank You Bar, choreographer Emily Johnson focuses on displacement and the work of creating a home where you find yourself. Where do you consider your home to be? Is home a place or the people that are in that place? How do you make a place feel like home? Also what does Johnson want her audiences to get from her work? If you could make a living doing what Johnson does, would you and why?
Johnson says, “We have physical responses to the world, all of us, and that is where dance begins.” Choreograph your own dance growing from a single physical response.
