    Interchange at Indivisible




    I currently have some work up at Indivisible as part of a group show titled, "Interchange", located in Portland OR. This work is specifically inspired by the writing of Katherine McKittrick. The show will be up until the 25th of June. Please do stop by and see it if you can.

    For more information and my reflection on the work shown, please see my blog post at She Got Love.

  • Upcoming Performance at Disjecta

    Upcoming Performance at Disjecta



    Next Sunday, I will be performing a new work in collaboration with Elisa Roberts, the creator of Feedingsmiles. Departing from a previous performance, Sound Beings (performed at R/SF), this work is a meditative piece that uses movement and text to reconsider the linearity of consciousness raising and progress.

    Please come join us, as there are a number of amazing Portland artists collaborating in this performance. Hope to see you there!
