I created "Saudade" as my final project for my BFA Dance Senior Seminar as part of the student-run dance film company Synaesthetic. "Saudade" explores the idea of mirror-touch synesthesia. For mirror-touch synesthetes, witnessing someone experience a physical feeling produces the same sensation in their bodies, such as touch, pain, or temperature. This film—and the choreography that comprises it—takes ideas from this phenomenon and makes them visible through movement.​​​​​​​
