“Unbound, We Howl” (2018)

This year I had the pleasure of dancing alongside, underneath, and above 24 strong women in Alexandra Stilianos’ MFA Thesis Unbound, We Howl featuring dance, audience interaction, projection, sound and text distortion, and an overall immersive construction about the rage of feminism and representation of underrepresented gender identifications. Dancers were on stage, in the audience, and…

The Worst of the Best of Us (2018)

The most surprising, productive, enjoyable, and successful process I embarked on thus far my junior year has been this duet. When second year graduate student Josh Anderson approached me in August asking me to create a duet with him based on responses to writing prompts given to each other, I’m not sure either of us…

Intermedia Experience

As Autumn 2017 comes to a close, I sit down to reflect on the unique composition course I had the fortune to take this semester.

I spent the last three weeks dancing alongside professional ballerinas, feeling a lot of emotions, throwing my body around recklessly on a…

“Where I Am Is What I Need”

But as I embark on fall semester madness, incredible reparatory, and new possibilities, I reflect on one of the better experiences of my…

Bryant Park Grooves

With YTT winding down, with an exam and now my first ever yoga class in my past, I am beginning to reflect on the last 5 weeks with Om Factory NYC’s 200hr-TT. And I must say a highlight of the entire experience was two Fridays ago when myself and 3 of my fellow yogis spontaneously…
