My work lives in the intersection of contemplative dance, improvisational performance art, and contemporary theater. It is often seen in non-traditional performance venues such as late night parties, warehouses and church basements, it is sometimes epic and may involve zombies or superheroes. I am drawn to the seemingly infinite, and yet simultaneously non existent, separation between me and you.
In creative process I am informed both by the practices and forms I was immersed in during my formal training, including Viewpoints Practice, Psychophysical Acting, Composition/Moment Work, Developmental Technique and Contemplative Dance Improvisation, as well as the methods I have adopted and adapted in the streets of New York, such as Burlesque, Street Theater and Large Scale Spectacle.
I am a founding member of CDP/NYC which has evolved from my close and continued work with Barbara Dilley and the investigations of mindfulness practices in performance making. In addition to my work as a Master Teaching Artist with Enact, I offer public workshops for the performer throughout the year in the art of deep play and composition. Learn more about me.
