I'm a multimedia artist who creates live performance, video and film, currently based in Vancouver, BC and Brooklyn, New York. 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 performance work has been seen internationally at the Prague Fringe Festival and the Ponderosa Tanzland Festival in Stolzenhagen, Germany; and at home in the U.S at the Philadelphia Fringe/FringeArts, and various venues in NYC including Mabou Mines, Exponential Festival at The Brick, The Tank, The Hudson Guild Theater, Movement Research, and Dixon Place. My short film, Our bodies like dams, has been screened at festivals across the US.
Residencies include: RAP at Mabou Mines (2023), Object Movement Residency & Festival at the Center at West Park (2023), Fresh Ground Pepper BRB Artist Retreat (2022), Barn Arts Collective (2019) and The Cannery (2019). In 2023 I was a recipient of a Brooklyn Arts Council Grant and a MAP Fund Microgrant. I trained at Ecole Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq in Paris, France and got my BA from Sarah Lawrence College.
I also collaborate as a dramaturg, director, stage manager and creative producer.
