SALT is an ongoing project about resilience and togetherness and draws to question how easy it is to make a beautiful mess of things. This piece has had several iterations, each individually tailored to the venue in which it was performed. The first, titled "May I borrow a cup of salt" (photographed to the right) was originally choreographed for a Red Cross event benefiting Japan tsunami relief efforts.
