Screencap from Braiding / Unbraiding / Rebraiding with Headlong Dance Theater and Tere O'Connor.

Headlong engaged choreographer Tere O'Connor in a five-month research and choreographic project as part of the organization's continuing effort to remain porous about its artistic process. O'Connor brought new strategies to Headlong's dance studio by inviting the company's three co-directors, David Brick, Andrew Simonet, and Amy Smith, to work independently. Without the pressure to produce a finished dance, the project became a research laboratory, and expanded the company members' working methods. The project was documented in the online publication danceworkbook: Braiding / Unbraiding / Rebraiding, presented by the Center.
