Porter's work is as much about language and the techniques of dramatic theater as it is about dance. She is interested in the interaction of words and movement, and her pieces are not so much a pairing as a collaboration of the two; sometimes she choreographs to the rhythms of spoken language and other times she finds words that amplify the gesture she's already created. "[Choreographing is] always a challenge," Porter says. "If I think of the words as movement, and choreograph that movement, it's more fun."
