This is not a letter but my arms around you for a brief moment
Nico Brown's latest work, This is not a letter but my arms around you for a brief moment, draws formal inspiration from his experience raised on the flatlands of the midwest. The work continues Brown's investigation into minimalism and choreography as design, weaving simple movement material into extravagant choreographic structures.

Cartography is a movement-ode, an intimate implosion between word and body. The second in a series of love addresses based on original poems, Cartography emerges from the formal romance of classical Indian dance to become a disputed map of lust and lament.
