Research and Destroy (silks/rope) 10:30am- 12:30pm
This class is for aerialists withe experience who want to broaden their boundaries and identify habits, assumptions, and expectations in their artistic practice. We will work toward creating a coherent, thinking body by building awareness using technique and skills collected through research and experience. We will integrate transition and “tricks” into sequences to become better technicians and performing artists being mindful of the question “what are we choosing/drawing from and why?”

Cirque Exotica- Vaudeville Exposition produced and curated by Sweet Pea and Jac Fatale

This is a new rope act that is still finding its feet. It is a more interactive piece than my other pieces. The narrative tells a back story of some of the other pieces I have made and evolved over the years. “Some Animal Are Easily Startled” Photos by Upper Boundary Photography. Minneapolis, MN

Dapper Fella Photos from Elektra Cute Presents Pink & White Ball

A couple pictures taken by the amazing Dapper Fella at The Lab Theater for Elektra Cute presents the 2nd annual Pink & White Ball for Planned Parenthood. The piece I performed was one of my oldest rope acts. I had to re-arrange it and start in silence to accommodate the    height of the theater.

Upper Boundary Photos Thursday Student Showcase 2018

The Lyra photos are a duet I am working on slowly building in more skill while trying to keep it simple and organized. The rope solo is a work in progress of pieces of older work that is meant for a longer evening about being prepared and answering questions.

Denver, CO. “Tabula Rasa”

These photos are from the dress rehearsal of a performance with live composition by Mikey Smith at The Buntport Theater in an evening curated and produced by The Rainbow Militia.
Photo credits Martha Wirth Photography.
The evening was an evening titled Tabula Rasa. The militia coordinated live musicians and composers with live performance. Mikey and I spoke and we divided up what we would be performing into sequences that could be re-arranged to fit the mood of the room or the temperature of the room.
