Leda In Waiting

Did she put on his knowledge with his power?

I mistook the web he was weaving for a nest we were building together.
In other words-
There will be no birds.  
There will be no babies.

3 Showings and a Request


In an ongoing effort to introduce audiences in my new East Coast home to my work I am thrilled to be showing short works at multiple venues this fall:

October 29 at 7pm I have a work in progress showing through Movement Research Open Performance at Eden's Expressway, located at 537 Broadway, 4th Floor, Manhattan

November 17 at 2pm I have a second work in progress showing at  Dance New Amsterdam280 Broadway (entrance at 53 Chambers St.), Manhattan

November 24  I'm showing in Williamsburg Art neXus’ WAXworks at Triskellion Arts118 North 11th Street, 3rd Floor, Brooklyn

In order to continue to make art that is authentic, intentional and well-crafted I need to reach out for some support.

My current work has a very stripped down-basement of the bar-rock show-raw, aesthetic, so I don’t need a lot. I just need studio space.  At $10-$20 an hour space rental fees add up fast.  Please consider making a donation of any size to allow me some room to work in.

I have decided to partner with New York Live Arts as a fiscally sponsored Associate Artist. This makes it possible to for me to once again accept tax-deductible support. 

Donations can be made directly on the New York Live Arts website here

Thank you for your continued support,

Artward Bound 2013

I am the luckiest artist in the world.

This August The Field sent me to Earthdance for an Artward Bound Residency
OMG.  Creative Paradise.  I haven't felt so completely myself for such a long time. 
The woods, the staff, our facilitator and an amazingly talented, smart kickass group of ladies all injected me with so much strength and renewal I'm completely reinvested in getting out there and kicking some arty ass in the most generous way possible.

While Earthdance has some gorgeous studios, I found myself even more inspired to do daily videodances in the woods.  To share with you a taste of this magical experience I am posting a few, randomly chosen, unedited moments.  
Also,  I have some material here, for an installation.  It needs a home.  Hit me up if you have some leads.
