Teresa Fellion founded BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance in late 2011. Fellion and company have created three connected yet distinct worlds using music and movement with rose walk green ice, a culmination of BodyStories’ projects over the last two years: HOME and Agawam.
HOME draws upon ritualistic process to elucidate the search for home via encounters, communication, and understanding of oneself and others. With Agawam, BodyStories considers the roles that family and memory play in the formation of identity. HOME and Agawam explore the emotionally charged journey that is the search for self-actualization and identity. rose walk green ice ingests and processes the ideas, themes, inspirations, and images in the previous works in an intimate, immersive way with its audiences.
