New Work for the Desert conceptually and choreographically embraces the act of homage as inextricably woven into our desire to create something new. The creative momentum for this project began a year ago during a two-month residency at Arizona State University by myself.
During that time, alone in the Southwest desert, I found myself ruminating on two important artistic influences in my life: Trisha Brown & James Turrell. The personal impressions and selected memories I have of their work have over the years become a well of inspiration, which I am always, carefully dangling my feet in. Since that formative residency in Arizona, this project has steadily become an opportunity for me to move deeper into that well and New Work for the Desert, is all the wading, swimming and flailing I’ve needed to keep my head above water!
The broader experience of art inspiring art has fueled and steered this creative project from the start. In addition to raising some much needed funds, I hope this campaign can also highlight a community of non dance related artists who inspire me and have donated their creative skills to help me offer you some pretty great rewards! Each reward tries to extend the life and scope of New Work for the Desert through new artistic creations and social exchanges.
As we begin to prepare for the upcoming release of issue No. 27 in mid-late March, we find ourselves taking a moment to pause and reflect on our current offering. In this 64 page issue, we share 15 seasonal recipes to warm your home, take a deep look at organ meats from past to present and explore the relationship between our butchers, community, and table, as well as break down essential illustrated how-to’s such as preparing the perfect ham and tying a standing rib roast. This issue is sure to be pulled from the library every fall and winter, year after year.
Issue 26 is always available for purchase for your collection in our store.

Buried under all this snow has us dreaming of warmer weather. Our reading inspiration at the office takes us back to summer of 2012 within issue No.21.
“Risk is the only way anything happens around here . . . The relentless but ineffective alarm clock echoing into the thunderdome or our dreams, plants that refuse to fruit, edits never made, the unpossessed performance . . . the fear or frying an egg, seasoning the pasta, browning the meat . . . We have to allow the fear to activate us.” (Excerpt p.5)
