 Michelle takes a moment to chat with Dances Made to Order

Tell us about some of your upcoming projects in 2012/2013

July 21-22, 2012 – I am presenting my new work with my company “Here Now Dance Collective” at ODC Theater as part of a self produced festival with 5 other women choreographers.

July 31-Aug. 5th, 2012 – I am traveling with a small group of dancers a film-makers to shoot a dance for camera film in West Virginia highlighting the Farm and movement philosophy of Dan Wagoner

If we were going to spend the day with you hanging out in SF, what would we do?

It would depend on who you are…if we are just going by my favorite things/activities then we would start in the morning at Kate’s Kitchen on Haight St. They make fresh home made biscuits there and being raised in South Carolina, I will always be drawn to that cloud like southern style biscuit. Then we would hit some of the vintage clothing stores on the Haight. This is where I like to costume shop. Then we could wonder into Golden Gate Park, I prefer the deep part of the park near Lindley Meadow. There are buffalo there and I enjoy watching them in their brooding stillness. The park dead ends into the beach. I would make you stick your feet in the water, it is very cold and refreshing. Finally, we could eat again, maybe Indian or Thai food. If Joe Goode has a show up we would go see that or hit up the old movie house the Castro Theater for a movie.

What is your favorite drink and where do you get it?

“Blood and Sand” at Alembic
