A video introduction to the exhibit that sets the tone inviting participant interaction during the run of the exhibit. 

Monitor 2: 

Gravity Wins is the newest video dance work filmed a few weeks ago and currently being completed. This piece appears to be a solo; however, I would argue that it is a lifelong duet with gravity. (Screendance) 

Pretty Little Dance is a screendance made with collaborators Vic Marks and Alexx Shilling. It screened at the 2021 San Souci Dance Festival of Dance Cinema in September. (Screendance) 

K.M.A. is a dance film collaboration with Elizabeth Tershur and Herbbie Moore. The film explores themes of group and individual power dynamics and othering demonstrated through performance of movement scores and composition of screen space. (Screendance) 

Monitor 3: 

Here Lies Frank was made possible through the UCLA Hothouse Residency and later produced by Los Angeles Movement Arts in the Diavolo performance space. It is a live dance piece with video projection. The piece is an exploration of the illusion of the American Dream and its complicated role in westward expansion as depicted by filmmaker Sergio Leone, composer Ennio Morricone, and Foley sound designers.

Brother is a collaborative movement score performed live by Sarah Leddy and myself at Pieter Performance Space in Los Angeles. Our exploration involved site specific performance designed to capture and portray the essence of our relationships with the brother figures in our lives. (Video Document of live work) 

Rite of Spring is a short screendance included in Sacre/ilège(s), an international omnibus project commemorating the first centenary of Igor Stravinsky’s composition. This project screened at the International de Vidéo Danse de Bourgogne (France). (Screendance) 

Invitation to a Conversation

Week 3: Controversial notions

(A long delayed entry. This is an accurate reflection of how life can become pressing AND it is still important to make time for your art practice.)

Week 2 : How do you begin?

I have never claimed the title of performance artist before because I never considered my lineage of training to be inclusive of this.
