Teresa Fellion founded BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance in late 2011. Fellion and company have created three connected yet distinct worlds using live music, movement, set, and projection, with rose walk green ice, a culmination of BodyStories’ projects over the last two years: HOME and Agawam, that explores self-awareness within communal bonds.
HOME draws upon ritualistic process to elucidate the search for home within the self via encounters, communication, and understanding of oneself and others. With Agawam, BodyStories considers the roles that family and ancestry 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 highlights the ideas, themes, and images in the previous works in an intimate, immersive, multi-perspective way with its audiences.
