La Hora de Salir

“La Hora de Salir” (2006) is an evening length dance piece that mines the physical and psychological mechanics of leaving. “La Hora de Salir” depicts a kinetic journey into the heart by way of the fearless and inquisitive body. By exploring the many facets of beginning, attachment, and departure, which form the cycles of life, “La Hora de Salir” unearths the underlying tranquility of solitude found along side change. This work combines theatrical elements of aerial/fabric work, set design, and featured segments of a dance-film shot in 8mm and projected on stage.











































"Gillespie's investigation of the expressive potential of pure movement is at heart resolutely modern"
