Reckless, blooming.

A solo film created for dance artist Erin Thompson, Reckless, blooming. moves through diverse biographical landscapes, both interior and exterior spaces, as well as through a doorway, a threshold for life, time and change. Movement dynamics express the range of this performer’s life - exertion, recovery, reflection, curiosity, aging and boundless joy. Choreographed by Bebe Miller, Reckless, blooming. celebrates Erin’s 50 year performance career as a professional dance artist.

Reckless, blooming. was filmed and edited by Caitlin Hammel with lighting design by Kevin A. Jones. SOLO: Six World-Premiere Dance Films was produced by Dana K. Kassel and Colin Edwards.

“Reckless, blooming. was commissioned by The Cowles Center as part of their SOLO Commissioning Program, funded by the McKnight Foundation. It was commissioned on behalf of Erin Thompson, 2019 McKnight Dancer Fellowship recipient.”
