"I don’t have a choreographic style. I do what feels good, what feels relevant and what feels impactful. I do believe that I have a choreographic voice however —you can certainly tell that it’s my work when you see it. The title Edge of Innovation got my wheels turning right away. I will definitely have a fresh/innovative/dynamic element of my piece, but I won’t disclose what the element will be yet."

"I use my choreographic voice to explore social issues and our emotional connections with others and ourselves. Audiences have the opportunity to question their own beliefs around these same issues, and I insert rays of hope throughout so that audiences are inspired to act in some way towards the greater good of humanity when they leave the performance."
— Justin David Sears-Watson, Phoenix Rising Dance Company artistic director (and former DK company dancer)

This athletic, powerful piece is a test for the company dancers at each performance. Set to the rhythmic music of Phillip Glass, the choreography in iconoGlass pushes the dancers' speed, stamina and artistry. This is an adrenaline rush for audiences, too!
