People often see relationships or stories in my dances. However, I consider myself a formalist. There may be narrative images, but no stories. I view content as moment that spice the form and flow of a work. I am concerned with the larger picture – the arc, pace and overall structure. Even the humor in dances has an effect on the flow of the work. ~ Scott Wells
