Rebecca Blunk Fund awardee 2019

I'm honored to be one of the awardees for New England Foundation for the Arts' Rebecca Blunk Fund in 2019, alongside Orlando HernΓ‘ndez and Geo Neptune, and past awardees including Vermont dancers Christal Brown and Lida Winfield.

This award will help support development of A Singular They. Thank you, NEFA!

About the award: The Rebecca Blunk Fund was established in memory of Rebecca Blunk (1953-2014), celebrating her 29 years of service to NEFA and her abiding passion for the arts. Honoring Rebecca’s desire that the fund support artistic creation, connection, and curation, the Fund awards annual grants to New England artists whose work demonstrates creative excellence and professional accomplishment. 

Artist in Residence: NECCA

This year, I'm in residence at the New England Center for Circus Arts through their Company in Residence program. I'm working on my new solo show, A Singular They, which will be my first piece integrating aerial work with dance performance. Stay tuned for work in progress showing information!

Poem Release: "Cavitation"

that they are small,
click-whistle hunting
in cerebrospinal darkness ...
