"The Student" (2014)

"The Student" (2014)


Summer 2017

Commissioned by the American Dance Festival, North Carolina

One does not know what to think when that something does not get answered, we generate something to replace it. We create. 


Spring/Summer 2016 - film, photo, and live performance

"three/3" divides the human life into birth, growth, and death. Revolving around a female perspective, "three/3," is an image-based theater of movement and object manipulation, where we see the "every woman," her archetypes, over the span of a lifetime, through time, and through the ages.
