New GroundWorks Dancetheater piece is about opening doors
by WILMA SALISBURY for the Cleveland Plain Dealer

"I knew when we put it on wheels that it would define the space," Shimotakahara said. "I thought of the stage as different areas. Each sequence takes place in a different space or room. It's not only physical space. It's also about stepping from the external world to the internal world."

African voices inspire dancers

'Iron Lung' choreographer breathes dance
by WILMA SALISBURY for the Cleveland Plain Dealer

The first time David Shimotakahara saw Keely Garfield perform her choreography, he knew he wanted her to create a piece for his ballet-trained company, GroundWorks Dancetheater.

"It was an intense duet, full of details," he said. "There's a different physicality in her work. Most of it is autobiographical."

Born and raised in England, Garfield has lived in New York City since 1986, and she became an American citizen after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
