NEVER ARRIVING II OR [________] OR ∞ †† ∞
My body becomes the site for inquiry and excavation for a series of task-meditation improvisations. These structured improvisations arose from my interest in investigating the degrees of consciousness of everything in site-specific, studio, and nontraditional/quotidian spaces (i.e. my apartment). I am interested in the way energy flows throughout the body creating nuanced states of beings and in noticing how the everyday becomes ritualized as we shift between the public and personal sphere. How can I continuously balance and structure a state of not knowing/not achieving anything to allow for the emergence of an alternative - sacred - healing suspension in time & space?

"Home" is a duet for one which investigates the lines between intimacy and aggression, tenderness and rage, togetherness and aloneness, in a romantic relationship between women. "Home" uses a mixed media of dance, text, homemade videos, and song to create a canvas that draws the audience into an uncomfortably personal space.

HEAR ME BREATHE
In life, we are constantly pulled in a million directions. Because of this, we constantly loose sight of our purpose. It takes that still small voice to grasp our attention and bring us back. When his happens we can finally breathe.
