Created by commissioned choreographer and former company member Emily Miller, Nancy Was a Gardener was not only an homage to a lost loved one, but a contemplation on how we cope with conflicted feelings about those we lose after they are gone. Miller employs her unique style of contemporary ballet juxtaposed with a satisfying weighted sensibility and quirky gesture work.
