Saturn the Roman God of agriculture and harvest. Saturn is also the 6th planet from the Sun and equated with the Greek God Cronus.

Saturn was another piece that was conceived before we knew we were in the 2010 Toronto Fringe Festival. I wanted to do a piece with the idea of women being chattel.

Chattel defined by Wikipedia is:
Personal property, roughly speaking, is private property that is moveable.

The original name of the piece is Saddress Your Aches. I renamed it when it was time to put it in Eternal Eclipse. I just thought the movement and ideas behind this piece goes along with the story of Saturn and his daughters. Every rehearsal I would come into the studio with set counts of choreography to teach. Lots of  floor work! Thank goodness for my dancers – They are troopers through the bruised knees and late nights at that.  I had the choreography for a long time in my head (since before Christmas last year) and it was one of the last pieces I worked with the dancers on before the Fringe. It is funny how things work out sometimes.
