The Stop Suffering Project (and other inquiries) 

40 min experiential dance performance
November 2015 first staged workshop presented by Dancing Grounds as part of eDGe Contemporary Dance Festival and the Faux/Real Festival, New Orleans, LA

What is suffering? Is it possible to stop suffering? The Stop Suffering Project is a series of experimental inquiries fusing a variety of healing practices facilitated by collaborations with Eastern Healing Practitioner Monica Mata Gilliam, communal discourse on the human condition of suffering within the community of New Orleans, and performance practices that invoke or provoke the art of suffering. This first workshop of the piece is an experimental and experiential performative laboratory engaging the audience physically and actively with these questions.

ways of forgetting 

60 min dance theater.
March 2014, California Institute of the Arts, Los Angeles, CA.

ways of forgetting is comprised of a series of vignettes, ever slightly connected and disconnected in much the same way relationships are to the people in our lives; the ones we love, the ones whom we meet briefly in passing for an evening, and the strangers we pass on the street.
Whimsical, athletic, and at times funny, it forces us to question deeply why and how we make ourselves lonely.
