Anna Marie Shogren did an interview with me on
Critcal Correspondence:

An excerpt:
Anna:  I am curious..working with a physical medium, do the ideas feed into each other? Do you feel like there was a different way of dealing with movement?

Emily: Often I will dance and I will try to put my mind somewhere else, and I will try to be back in Alaska. But, that’s too broad. I will find a specific place, or a specific time, or a specific visual landscape to do it in. A physical interaction between past and present, that’s obviously only actually present. But, somehow, for me at those times, it merges. It becomes where there isn’t that much space between past and present and future. I think that is the truth about our physical body, is that we are all those times at once. Maybe physical action is the only true place that you can find that sublime sense of time where it is all at once. I can be standing in Minneapolis but, I can also at the same time, with intention, be at my grandma’s house in Alaska or I could be in New York. Maybe talking about it makes it seem like that can’t be true, but it really is.

And here's an interview with This Week in New York

While in New York
I've been rehearsing our NEW dance, Niicugni with the Amazing Aretha Aoki. I also spent a day rehearsing with SO PERCUSSION at their studio. We're working together on their new piece, Where We Live, for premiere in 2012.
