CURRENT + UPCOMING
OUR BODIES LIKE DAMS, currently in production, is a short film that uses handmade puppetry, animation and dance to follow a couple's surrealistic journey in their flooding apartment. A seemingly straight apocalyptic love story, it gradually unfolds into a queer, eco-fantasy of a woman's unexpected metamorphosis.
Premiering January 2023 as part of Exponential Festival at The Brick! More info soon!
SEPTEMBER 2022-APRIL 2023
Thrilled to be a 2022-2023 Object Movement artist-in-residence at The Center at West Park with collaborator, Karen Loewy-Movilla, to develop ISADORA THE BAPTIST.
A comic-myth re-mix of Noah’s ark, Isadora the Baptist follows Isadora and her family of ill-equipped saints as they learn to live off the land. Featuring a wooly mammoth as holy mother, a shape-shifting apostle, naughty nuns, and chimeric prophets, the audience moves between the interrelated worlds of the narrating Hot Apostle’s congregation, and Isadora and her family’s homestead. This play offers a back-to-the-land, feminist, animistic theology set in a post-capital holy land.
Object Movement Festival will take place March 20 — April 1, 2023, at The Center at West Park. More info soon!
Very grateful to be a 2022 BRB Artist in Residence & develop my first short puppet film, OUR BODIES LIKE DAMS with Xuan Liu and Karen Loewy-Movilla.
