desire

There’s a trailer available to view now from the Empire performance that happened last month at TOTAH. It’s still so weird to hear my own voice recorded back, but that’s me talking at the beginning and there’s a clip of Marine reading some of my work later in the video including one of my favorite lines, “I feel safer already.”

I was a bit too skittish to perform much in Empire, but I’m super-excited about part 2, Desire. I am very much looking forward to it.

But for What’s My Axis? part 2: Desire will be happening at the Fridman Gallery as part of the
New Ear Festival 2018
Wednesday February 7th at 8pm. 

FRIDMAN GALLERY is located at
287 Spring St. New York City.
Tickets are available here.

Kara Rooney

Age of Aquarius focus is on the group. I guess that’s how I’m so lucky to find myself as part of this amazing collaboration happening with artist Kara Rooney, composer Fatrin Krajka, movers Dylan Crossman and Claude ‘CJ’ Johnson, and poets Marine Cornuet and Laura Henriksen.

But for What’s My Axis part 1: Empire

The first performance will be next month at TOTAH gallery in New York City.

More details to follow.
