Everyone has gone somewhere-- and everyone wanted me to go along. I just wanted to sit at home and look at the ocean and be still. This thing that the ocean is-- that I like so much-- terrifies me-- the long steady roll of the clean green breakers-- the blue day -- the spray like the manes of wild white horses flying back from the top of each wave--it is wonderful.
- Georgia O'Keefe, 1928
Inspired by the life and work of Georgia O'Keeffe, Georgia was created and presented in 2018 at Performance Works Northwest in Two of a Kind: A Shared Evening of Dance.
Georgia incorporates the letters sent between O'Keeffe and her partner, Alfred Stieglitz throughout their relationship, as well as selected artwork of O'Keeffe.
