The Pleasure of Sometimes

Choreographed and directed by Julie Satow Freeman
MFA candidate in Experimental Choreography
Performed and inspired by Stella Aryan, Sangwoo Ha, Patricia Huerta, C.J. Logel and Edwin A. Sigüenza

The Pleasure of Sometimes is an evening-length dance work that explores intimacy and the human desire for connection. In an ongoing search, five dancers vacillate between relationships,  displacements, and the seduction of technology in lively interchanges that reveal the fine lines between connection and disconnection. As bodies and technology come together in this performance, the mundane and the extraordinary shift, twist, and propel the dancers toward the almost, the unexpected, and the fragility of each lived moment.

Choreographed and directed by Julie Satow Freeman in deep collaboration with the dancers and in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Masters of Fine Arts degree in Experimental Choreography. Original music created by local composer, Gabriel Hartman.

Julie Satow Freeman is a member of the dance faculty at Mt. San Jacinto College where she has taught for more than eighteen years with a focus in modern dance technique and choreography. She has performed at the Japan American Theatre as part of the Olympic Arts Festival, at the Edinburgh Arts Festival Fringe in Scotland, in the Dance Kaleidoscope Festival, and with the companies of Stephanie Gilliland and Dancers, Groundwork, and Liz Davidow and Dancers. Freeman is a co-founder of P.L.A.C.E. Performance (Possibility, Location, Artistry, Collaboration, Evolving), a dance collective that is committed to creating community by providing supportive, non-competitive performance opportunities for dance artists in the Riverside County area. A second year M.F.A. candidate in Experimental Choreography, Freeman is the recipient of the Chancellor’s Distinguished Fellowship Award, an MFA Graduate Fellowship, and is a two-time fellow in the Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts.
