I am part of a company called LoudSol, Directed by Akil Davis. I do a rope act in this show where i take an audience member from their seat and insert them into the piece. The energy of the piece can completely shift depending on the person I pick. Its a fun experiment each night to find challenges in a wild card audience member. Performed first at The Theater for the new City in August 2014 NYC Fringe Festival Lynn Redgrave theater August 2015
The Secret Below was my aerial debut. It is a story adapted from Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid directed by Sara Zepezauer. This is not Disney’s fairy tale version.
I played the role of the sister who races to the surface to hand the little mermaid a knife to kill the prince before the sun goes down and then she can live. She loves him and so she decides to die and turn into the foam of the sea rather than kill a man who left her for another woman.
In this show I play many roles but my favorite part was my solo silks act. I was a mermaid so my legs were tied together and I can only climb the silks with my arms. I had a knife in my mouth that I incorporated into the entire dance. It was still in my mouth while being spun around only holding onto a loop at the top of the silk with my ankles. It was the first aerial show I was ever a part of and to this day remains my favorite. I was challenged in so many ways. We performed it at my main training space, The Loft, in Buschwick. The three flights of stairs and dark underground Brooklyn feeling made this show one that my family who came to see it will never forget.
The Four Seasons is an interactive electric dream-like experience involving a team of over 100 actors, singers, and dancers.
A dance-theatre collaboration with The Angel Orensanz Foundation, one of New York's most unparalleled "hidden treasures" and Charles L Mee, "an American playwright, historian and author known for his collage-like style of playwriting, which makes use of radical reconstructions of found texts.
