Keep Me (at the) Close is created by Rose Pasquarello Beauchamp, a veteran choreographer whose interdisciplinary work focuses on collaboration, somatics and social justice. Her choreography has been featured internationally for the past 20 years and has been seen on the Fringe Festival Circuit since 2006 where her work was voted Best in Festival at the San Francisco Fringe. She has received multiple grants to initiate using dance in community engaged settings and focuses on ways to engage dancer-citizens. Her current work has a focus on the role the body plays in environmental justice and as an agent of change.
