The intensive weekend is focused on building community by creating together. The performance is informal and low stress, but we go deep into process to create the piece performed on Sunday. The themes that arise throughout the weekend are cultivated through conversation, improvisation, choreography and what is present for the specific group that is participating. We do a little 'asset mapping' along the way (Thank you Ubw Sli for this terminology) - 'what embodied wisdoms are you bringing into the space?' and how can we honor all voices/movers in the room. Then crafting it together quickly, taking the preciousness out and the embodiment into performance.

Social justice, inclusivity, identity, equity and feminist perspectives are currents running though all of my teaching and creative work; PRACTICES that I keep in constant motion and fully present, unapologetically.
