Blue No w here

It was a pleasure to perform in Fenella Kennedy’s original work, Blue No w Here, in Columbus’s 10 Tiny Dances on March 17 and 18. Through a process inspired by dancers’ improv and generation, Blue No w here became a communal work about the communal impacts of technology. I felt that rather than dancing to…

Group Forms: Work and Reflection

Composition classes are a great space for personal growth. I took Group Forms in the hope that I would become more proficient and translating my artistic aesthetic onto larger groups of people. I found that I gained a lot of skills I didn’t expect such as being able to work better in collaboration with other…

My 2nd Year at OSU: A Melodrama

Sophomore year didn’t end with a bang. My second year at OSU was one Big Bang that’s ending with a nice fizzle. Freshman year was an easy reflection. Thanks friends, thanks family, etc. The usual narrative. This year ran a lot deeper than that. My second hear at OSU has easily been the densest of…

Preserved, Revered, in Whole

The act of art making is intensely and inherently vulnerable… what else is new. You take some of the deepest bits of your soul and put it in a glass box, or in our case a black box, for people to experience, question, indulge in, judge, fall in love with, or worse, walk away utterly…

Decrepit

Thank you Marissa Miller for your openness and receptiveness, and for being willing to be cold in an abandoned farm house.

“Tif”: Composition II Final

For my final for Composition II, I decided to undertake a task much more difficult than any I have in this class all semester. I decided to create work for another person’s body. Working with the conceptual brain child of myself and Kat Sprudzs, I endeavored to make a work to be on and for Kat.…

Laban Writer: My Experience in Analysis Class

  Analysis is an infamous fact of The Ohio State University. It’s a complicated subject that I found myself having a powerful love/hate relationship with. From 3-5pm in a small studio with burning fluorescent lights, coupled with reading tedious scores, makes for a mentally and physically exhausting four hours of me week. My feelings vacillated…
