A video I made for BDT winter workshop which I have attended now 2 years in a row. Since I was injured the video took on a documentary // journey aspect. Made me question a lot what is dance, aside from physicality.
APRIL MAY JUNE
I have passed a turbulent chapter in my life, where things broke apart and came full circle, where I ran madly just to stay in one place. Met an old lady who told me to dance in the storm and welcome the struggle

Shot and edited this in 4 days while coming off a knee and shoulder injury. Struggled with relationships, health, jobs, and housing for some months. Filming this dance video was the beginning of my healing process.
Working as a Fantastikal / Fae character was a challenge. No speaking, 8 hours in the sun, full bodysuit and make-up, no items except for a straw to forage water from fellow actors and patrons. Somehow at the end of the day I leave with more energy than I started with. Renaissance Faire is an amazing community. Picture credits go to Lightcrafter, Joanne Wilborn, Ron Frary, and World Domination Design.
Life drawing + illustrations. It was a very rough year, but it was the first year that I began to get work for my skills.

Started at 4.44 am, stood in line for 6 hours, drove another 8 hours, auditioned for 10 minutes. Difficult but worth it.
