Independent Project

Second Memory


Created for Hubbard Street Dance Chicago (2005)

Choreography by: Alex Ketley

Music By: Les Stuck

Costumes by: Rita Dilorenzo

Danced by: the company members

Second Memory was commissioned by Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and was funded in part by a national Choo-San Goh Award for Choreography. The work was the first collaboration that Alex did with former Frankfurt Ballet composer Les Stuck. The piece ventured into lots of different processes and in the end felt like an odd collision of temperaments.  Though Alex felt the work ultimately didn’t work as a whole, the work taught him a tremendous amount.
