I am a Brooklyn-based multimedia artist who creates live performance, video and film. My work explores mythic narratives set in post-industrial wastelands, to investigate humanity’s spiritual and ethical unknowns. Using surreal storytelling, video, physical performance, and puppetry, I make worlds where queer and beyond-human futures emerge from modern ruins.
My work has been seen internationally at the 2019 Prague Fringe Festival and the Ponderosa Tanzland Festival in Stolzenhagen, Germany; and at home in the U.S at the 2020 Philadelphia Fringe (FringeArts), and various venues in NYC including The Tank, The Hudson Guild Theater, Cloud City, Movement Research, The Brick, Mabou Mines and Dixon Place. Also beneath magnolia trees, on a riverbed, in the middle of the road, on top of a compost pile.
I am a 2022-2023 Object Movement Artist-in-Residence at the Center at West Park, and a 2022 Fresh Ground Pepper BRB Artist-in-Residence. Past residencies include Barn Arts Collective (2018, 2019) and The Cannery (2019). In 2018, I was the recipient of the Sherman Fairchild Grant in Art + Technology, and was shortlisted for The Leslie Scalapino Award for Innovative Women Performance Writers for my play, In the woods where the men work. I trained at Ecole Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq in Paris, France and got my BA from Sarah Lawrence College.
